DESCRIPTIONWho was America’s most important Civil War president? For those of us who live in the South it wasn’t Abraham Lincoln, it was Jefferson Davis. If you’re not as familiar with Davis as you are with Lincoln, it’s not surprising: when the Northern victors rewrote the history of the conflict, they glorified liberal Lincoln while all but ignoring conservative Davis - a biased trend that continues to this day. In this one-of-a-kind Civil War Sesquicentennial Edition, The Quotable Jefferson Davis, award-winning author, Southern historian, and Davis family relation Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook brings the conservative Rebel leader’s suppressed and forgotten words and ideas back to life; traditional American beliefs that were once ardently embraced by over half the United States, and much of Europe as well. Included here, among some 300 footnoted entries, are Davis’ core views on government, the Constitution, the Union, the Confederacy, states' rights, slavery, secession, his presidency, the War, the Southern people, Lincoln, Yankees, Reconstruction, and more.Though brief, this is a significant work that should be required reading in every American home and school. For with the original intention of the Founding Fathers having been lost (that, in Davis’ words, “sovereignty is inherent in the people”), and with the central government continuing to enlarge on a daily basis, this book’s powerful message and revolutionary contents are now more topical than at any time since Davis took office in 1861. The foreword is by Percival Beacroft, Trustee of the Jefferson Davis Papers since 1973, founder of the Davis Family Association, and executive producer of the documentary film Jefferson Davis, An American President. Colonel Seabrook’s book, The Quotable Jefferson Davis, is available in paperback and hardcover.Click on “Reviews 2” to see what people are saying about this book.

AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: "THE REAL DAVIS IN HIS OWN WORDS": "This is a book every Civil War buff - pro-North or pro-South - should have because it reveals in Jefferson Davis' own words what he truly believed about the War, the Constitution, and life in the Old South. Instead of having conventional historians interpret what the CSA's first and only President was like, read this book and find out what Davis really said." - ANDREW MURDAUGH
