Description
1890 Jefferson Davis Memorial Jones America President Civil War Slavery Racism



The ‘Davis Memorial Volume’ is a sourcebook on the Confederate president outlining his life and character and his sickness, death, funeral, and the “world’s tribute to his memory.” Jones wrote the work explicitly to portray the Confederate President in a positive light indulging in wishful thinking and typical arguments of the North winning by numbers through ‘Negro Population’ and ‘populations of Europe.’



Eicher points out,

“Among the most valuable portions of the work are Davis’s autobiography written at Beauvoir in November 1889; his inaugural addresses of 18 February 1861 and 22 February 1862; and a great store of personal information gleaned from Jones’s friendship with Davis and the recollections of many others…Jones presents several papers attempting to show that Davis was not a traitor to his country but the greatest patriot and stateman of his time.”



This 1890 edition includes numerous full page black and white illustrations throughout.
