"The Quotable Jefferson Davis"
By Lochlainn Seabrook
120 pages; Illustrated
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.
