About the Book
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.
