The President Who Wouldn't

Donald  Collins December 2, 2005

In 1865, Jefferson Davis was the leader of a failed experiment in creating a new nation, hated by his enemies and despised by his own people for losing the war. By the first decade of the 20th century, Davis had joined the beloved Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson as the third member of the Confederate pantheon. Donald E. Collins, author of The Death and Resurrection of Jefferson Davis describes how this transformation took place.
