Recounting the story that transfixed the South and explores the ways in which these funerals illuminate the repercussions of the Civil War a generation after its end. When the Civil War ended, Jefferson Davis had fallen from the heights of popularity to depths of despair. In this fascinating new book, Donald Collins explores the resurrection of Davis to heroic status in the hearts of white Southerners culminating in one of the grandest funeral processions the nation had ever seen. As schools closed and bells tolled along the thousand mile route, Southerners appeared en masse to bid a final farewell to the man who championed Southern secession and ardently defended the Confederacy."@en
