Written by a member of the S.C. Division United Daughters of the Confederacy and the daughter of a Southern soldier, this booklet outlines the early military and later political career of the illustrious Confederate President. The author focuses on Davis' faithful adherence to principle over expediency throughout his public service and exonerates him from the accusations of cruelty to Northern prisoners during the late War Between the States. Several other Southern ladies offer their own personal recollections of Davis in the appendices.
