Jefferson Davis, Confederate President
Rich in detail and exhilaratingly told with generous selections from Davis' own letters and speeches, this book provides the most insightful account available of the Confederate presidency - suggesting that perhaps it was the Confederate government, rather than Davis himself, that failed. More than that, it shows us Davis as an American leader and offers a new appreciation of his place in our country's history.

Jefferson Davis
The Essential Writings. William J. Cooper, Jr., ed. "Eclipsed in our memory of the Civil War by Abraham Lincoln, Robert E. Lee, and other military heroes, Jefferson Davis was arguably one of the most important figures in the antebellum and wartime eras. Davis' biographer, William Cooper, Jr., has sifted through the huge number of Davis letters and speeches to select those that best tell the story of his life and provide insight to his character in this invaluable volume." - James M. McPherson, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Battle Cry of Freedom. 492 pgs., 5˝"x 8", hdbd.

An Honorable Defeat
The Last Days of the Confederate Government. William C. Davis. This is the story of the four months that saw the surrender of the South and the assassination of Lincoln by Southern partisans.

Breckinridge, Secretary of War, who hoped pragmatism would save the shattered remnants of the land he loved so dearly. 512 pgs., 25 B&W photos, 6"x 9", sfbd.
