Eicher, author of The Longest Night In the only book to tell the definitive story of Confederate President Jefferson Davis's chase, capture, imprisonment, and release, journalist and Civil War writer Clint Johnson paints a riveting portrait of one of American history's most complex and enduring figures. "Riveting And Revealing." --Marc Leepson, author of Desperate Engagement In the vulnerable weeks following the end of the war and Abraham Lincoln's assassination, some in President Andrew Johnson's administration burned to exact revenge against Jefferson Davis.

After a chase through North and South Carolina and Georgia, Davis was captured. The former United States senator and Mexican War hero was imprisoned for two years in Fortress Monroe, Virginia, where he was subjected to torture and humiliation--yet he was never brought to trial. "Engaging. . .Vivid, Fresh, And Entertaining." --Chris Hartley, author of Stuart's Tarheels With a keen eye for period detail, as well as a Southerner's insight, Johnson sheds new light on Davis's time on the run, his treatment while imprisoned, his surprising release from custody, and his later travels, in this fascinating account of a defining episode of the Civil War.

White House Of The Confederacy

by Malinda W. Collier, White House Of The Confederacy Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download White House Of The Confederacy book, "White House of the Confederacy: an Illustrated History brings together photographs, many published here for the first time, that tell the story of a grand edifice, one that has been significant not only in Richmond's history, but in Southern history as well. Built in 1818 by John Brockenbrough, the mansion at Twelfth and Clay streets was home to some of Richmond's leading citizens. The building was thrust into prominence in 1861 when the city of Richmond purchased it to be used as the executive mansion for Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederate States of America. For nearly four years the White House of the Cnfederacy was a political and social center, as well as a family home. With the collapse of the Confederacy in April 1865, the bulding became headquarters for the United States army that occupied Richmond. In November 1870 the finance committee of the Richmond city council decided to auction the contents of the Davis Mansion and convert the bulding into a public school. Auctioneer Wellington Goddin's advertisement in the local newspapers boasted that the 'location and neighborhood are equal to the best in Richmond, and by renown of its commanding eminence, the view from it is most lovely.' After twenty years as a school the building had lost most of its luster and the city council condemned it to destruction. Fortunately, an organization of Richmond women lobbied successfully to save the structure and turned it into a museum for 'relics' of the Confederacy. Saved as a shrine of the Confederate 'Lost Cause,' the mansion has in recent years been restored to the beauty and magnificence of its heyday, the time when its occupant was Jefferson Davis. These handsome photographs chronicle the history of the White House of the Confederacy, the people associated with it, and the building's rebirth as a historic home of national significance." -- From publisher's description.

Jefferson Davis Unconquerable Heart

by Felicity Allen, Jefferson Davis Unconquerable Heart Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Jefferson Davis Unconquerable Heart book, Preeminent Civil War historian Frank Vandiver always longed to see an interpretive biography of Jefferson Davis. Finally, more than twenty years after Vandiver expressed that wish, publication of Jefferson Davis, Unconquerable Heart makes such an interpretive biography available. Felicity Allen begins this monumental work with Davis's political imprisonment at the end of the Civil War and masterfully flashes back to his earlier life, interweaving Davis's private life as a schoolboy, a Mississippi planter, a husband, a father, and a political leader. She follows him from West Point through army service on the frontier, his election to the U.S. House of Representatives, his regimental command in the Mexican War, his service as U.S. secretary of war and senator, and his term as president of the Confederate States of America. Although Davis's family is the nexus of this biography, friends and enemies also play major roles. Among his friends intimately met in this book are such stellar figures as Andrew Jackson, John C. Calhoun, Zachary Taylor, Franklin Pierce, Albert Sidney Johnston, and Robert E. Lee. With the use of contemporary accounts and Davis's own correspondence, Jefferson Davis, Unconquerable Heart casts new light upon this remarkable man, thawing the icy image of Davis in many previous accounts. Felicity Allen shows a strong, yet gentle man; a stern soldier who loved horses, guns, poetry, and children; a master of the English language, with a dry wit; a man of powerful feelings who held them in such tight control that he was considered cold; and a home-loving Mississippian who was drawn into a vortex of national events and eventual catastrophe. At all times, "duty, honor, country" ruled his mind. Davis's Christian view of life runs like a thread throughout the book, binding together his devotion to God, his family, and the land. Jefferson Davis, Unconquerable Heart brings Davis to life in a way that has never been done before. The variety of his experience, the breadth of his learning, and the consistency of his beliefs make this historical figure eminently worth knowing.
