About this title

Synopsis:

Much of Jefferson Davis' life and career has been obscured in controversy and misinterpretation. This full, carefully annotated edition will make it possible for scholars to reassess the man who served as President of the Confederacy and who in the aftermath of war became the symbolic leader of the South.

For almost a decade a dedicated team of scholars has been collecting and documenting Davis' papers and correspondence for this multi-volume work. The first volume includes not only Davis' private and public correspondence but also the important letters and documents addressed to and concerning him. Two autobiographical accounts, a detailed genealogy of the Davis family, and a complete bibliography are also included.

This volume covers Davis' early years in Mississippi and Kentucky, his career at West Point, his first military assignments, and his tragic marriage to Sarah Knox Taylor. Together, the letters and documents unfold a human story of the first thirty-two years of a long life that later became filled with turbulence and controversy.

About the Author:

Haskell M. Monroe, Jr., was professor of history and dean of faculties emeritus at Texas A&M University. He also served as president of the University of Texas at El Paso and chancellor of the University of Missouri. He was coeditor of volume 1 of The Papers of Jefferson Davis.

James T. McIntosh was the editor or coeditor of volumes 1–3 of The Papers of Jefferson Davis.
