Meet the Author

Jefferson Finis Davis (1808-1889) was born in Kentucky and grew up in Mississippi. He was elected to Congress from Mississippi in 1845 and, later, to the Senate. President Franklin Pierce appointed him Secretary of War in 1853, but during the growing sectional crisis, Davis returned to the Senate and followed his state when it seceded. When the Confederacy crumbled, Davis was captured and spent two years in Federal prison.

Barnes and Noble shipped the book in less than 4 days, and what I've looked at so far i'm loving the book. You don't know the whole story of the Civil War until you read the accounts from both sides.

A poor attempt at justifying treason of the nation that he swore an oath to defend when he was graduated from the West Point.
