Jefferson Finis Davis
Background[edit | edit source]
Davis was an American statesman and leader of the Confederacy during the American Civil War, serving as President of the Confederate States of America for its entire history, from 1861 to 1865. Prior to his presidency, Davis served as President Franklin Pierce's Secretary of War and a senator from Mississippi from 1857 until 1861. Following the civil war, Davis was imprisoned on charges of treason. After two years of imprisonment, his $100,000 bail was posted by prominent citizens of both Northern and Southern states. He spent the last years of his life being active in behind-the-scenes politics until his death in 1889.
