Most adults know little more. Who was this enigmatic man - reportedly aloof but temperamental, ravaged in health but dogged in spirit? What did he think and do as the Civil War clouds gathered and burst? This balanced biography, first published in 1907, gives focus to a character and career not well understood.

Much of the book, however, focuses on Davis's life after the Civil War, when she struggled to support her penniless husband and later managed her own survival as a widow for over 25 years. Varina Davis drew vast criticism during the postbellum years from her fellow Southerners for her controversial views on the war, particularly when she proclaimed that God's will had provided the North's victory. In spite of the disparagement, Davis spend much of her later life publicly working toward mending the rift between North and South, moving to New York and even befriending the wife of former Union general Ulysses Grant. While the narrative occasionally leans toward overt sympathy, Cashin's study presents an otherwise objective analysis of the tragic Davis and her often-vilified husband+-+294775921519215ocn003169490book19770.27Eaton, ClementJefferson DavisHistoryBiographyA biography of Jefferson Davis, who was a West Point graduate, soldier in the Black Hawk Wars, plantation master and self-made aristocrat, Secretary of War under Franklin Pierce, and the President of the Confederate States of America18888ocn044764011book20000.24Cooper, William JJefferson Davis, AmericanBiography"West Point graduate, secretary of war under President Pierce, U.S. senator from Mississippi - how was it that this statesman and patriot came to be president of the Confederacy, leading the struggle to destroy the United States?

It says practically nothing about military leaders. The fact is commonly forgotten that the South possessed civic as well as military figures. It had a government as well as an army.

Lee. There is no more time the Yankees are coming, it warned. Shortly before midnight, Davis boarded a train from Richmond and fled the capital, setting off an intense chase as Union cavalry hunted the Confederate president. Two weeks later, President Lincoln was assassinated, and the nation was convinced that Davis was involved in the conspiracy. To the Union, Davis was no longer merely a traitor, but a murderer. Lincoln's murder, autopsy, and White House funeral transfixed the nation. Millions watched the funeral train roll by on its way to Illinois, in the largest and most magnificent funeral pageant in American history. Meanwhile, Davis was hunted down and placed in captivity, the beginning of an intense and dramatic odyssey that would transform him into a martyr of the South's Lost Cause."-- From publisher description+-+K42887615517723ocn010998285book19850.23Davis, BurkeThe long surrenderHistoryThis account of the last days of the Civil War focuses on the capture and imprisonment of President Jefferson Davis+-+9459724215324174329ocn056433220book18660.50Craven, John JosephPrison life of Jefferson Davis embracing details and incidents in his captivity, particulars concerning his health and habits, together with many conversations on topics of great public interestHistoryBiographyAnnotation+-+045036730632416616ocn023692701book19910.27Davis, William CJefferson Davis : the man and his hourHistoryBiographyA biography of Jefferson Davis-statesman, Mexican war hero, and President of the Confederate States of America+-+542576253515942ocn020594089book19900.27Woodworth, Steven EJefferson Davis and his generals : the failure of Confederate command in the WestHistoryExamines the relationship of the Confederate generals with Jefferson Davis and each other, on and off the battlefield+-+821051552515865ocn045002147book20010.24Davis, William CAn honorable defeat : the last days of the Confederate governmentHistory"By February 1865, the end was clearly in sight for the Confederate government. Lee's defeat at Gettysburg had dashed the hopes of its army, and Grant's victory at Vicksburg had cut the South in two. An Honorable Defeat is the story of the four months that saw the surrender of the South and the assassination of Abraham Lincoln by Southern partisans. It is also the story of two men, antagonists yet political partners, who struggled to achieve their own differing visions: Jefferson Davis, autocratic president of the Confederate States, who vowed never to surrender whatever the cost, and his secretary of war, General John C. Breckinridge, who hoped pragmatism would save the shattered remnants of the land he so loved." "William C. Davis traces the astounding journey of these men, and the entire Confederate cabinet, as they fled Richmond by train, then by mule, then on foot. Using original research, he narrates, with dramatic style and clear historical accuracy, the futile quarrels of the two men as they continued their flight from their eventual fate."--BOOK JACKET+-+391055606515696ocn299039028file20080.32Cooper, William JJefferson Davis and the Civil War eraHistoryBiographyIn his masterpiece, Jefferson Davis, American, William J.
