Jefferson Davis: An American President was five years in the making and is the first and definitive documentary film on
the entire life of patriot and president, Jefferson Davis.
Across three beautifully shot and edited episodes, the full spectrum of Davis' life comes into full view: from his frontier
youth, to his loyal service to the United States as military officer, congressman, secretary of war, and two-term senator
from the state of Mississippi; to his rise and fall as Confederate President; through his unlawful two year imprisonment
after the Civil War; and finally covering his 25 years as a man struggling to find a country in the face of all that was lost.
Jefferson Davis' life spanned the 19th Century and he was one of the pivotal figures that shaped the United States of
America. His life was heroic and tragic and at all times, epic.
This project not only covers Davis' public life, but also delves deeply into his private and family life. Though his own
words, from letters and speeches, to expert analysis by leading Davis scholars, the film offers keen insight into the mind
behind the man.
Working in concert with the Papers of Jefferson Davis, and other primary sources, the documentary was meticulously
researched and top Davis scholars from across the country were interviewed both on and off camera for the project.
The filmmakers had exclusive access to the extant locations from Davis' life including:
Rosemont Plantation in Woodville, Mississippi
Beauvoir in Biloxi, Mississippi
First Confederate White House in Montgomery, Alabama
Confederate White House in Richmond, Virginia
Fortress Monroe in Hampton Roads, Virginia
The United States Capitol in Washington, D.C.
The production was headed by award winning writer, producer, director and editor, Brian Gary. It was conceived and
funded by Percival Beacroft, Executive Producer and Chairman of Rosemont Pictures Inc.
NATHAN BEDFORD FORREST DOCUMENTARY - 2 DVD SET
Total run time: 2 hours 34 min
From Kenneth Neill and Scott Cranford (Cane Ridge Productions):
DVD 1: That Devil Forrest is a biographical look at the life of General Nathan Bedford Forrest. From his boyhood in
Chapel Hill, Tennessee, through his military career in the Confederate Army, to his post-bellum civilian life, many myths
and legends about him are explored. Thousands of hours of research have gone into this work and a panel of speakers
with varied backgrounds have been assembled to provide an examination of his life that is both educational and
entertaining. Run time: 1 hour 47 min.
DVD 2: The Battle of Fort Pillow Five historians provide insight into the events that led Forrest to target this outpost and
provide a detailed account of the battle that took place. With over 2,000 men, Forrest surrounded a Union garrison of
less than 600 and demanded surrender. Forrest fought in numerous battles during the War for Southern Independence
but this is the one for which he draws the most criticism. Run time: 47 min.
“That Devil Forrest was a great documentary. It held my attention throughout and was well constructed. I can tell much time was put into the making of the film. This documentary stands as a testimony of truth as it concerns the real Nathan Bedford Forrest.” - JAY KRUIZENGA
