Description

John W. Daniel, Confederate War Veteran and Virginia Congressman brings us Life and Reminiscences of Jefferson Davis…,  the first “life” of Davis following his death the previous year.

The first 99 pages follow Davis’ life.  The remainder are reminiscences by such luminaries as Lee’s aide Charles Marshall, ex-Confederate generals Fitzhugh Lee, John B. Gordon, and Joseph Wheeler, a Davis classmate, his war-time pastor, members of his cabinet, and others.  The book concludes with some addresses by Davis, press estimates, and messages of condolence.

Excellent; first owner’s bookplate, signature, and date.  Uncommon.
