The rise and fall of the Confederate Government by Jefferson Davis( Book )

41 editions published between 1880 and 2014 in English and held by 2,399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the bloodiest conflicts ever to take place on American soil, the Civil War pitted brother against brother as North and South fought to secure their futures. Confederate president Jefferson Davis's 1881 memoir, The Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government is a history of the Confederate States of America and a vindication of the Southern cause. While Rise and Fall disappointed Davis's hopes of restoring his fortune, destroyed during and after the war, it was successful in rehabilitating his image in the minds of Southerners, and led to the eventual reinstatement of his American citizenship in 1978.

"This volume, the first of its kind, is a selected collection of Davis's writings culled in large part from the authoritative Papers of Jefferson Davis, a multivolume edition of his letters and speeches published by the Louisiana State University Press, and includes thirteen documents from manuscript collections and one privately held document that have never before appeared in a modern scholarly edition. From letters as a college student to his sister, to major speeches on the Constitution, slavery, and sectional issues, to his farewell to the U.S. Senate, to his inaugural address as Confederate president, to letters from prison to his wife, these selected pieces present the many faces of the enigmatic Jefferson Davis."--Jacket
