Motivated partially by his deep-rooted antagonism toward his enemies (both the Northern victors and his Southern detractors), partially by his continuing obsession with the cause, and partially by his desperate pecuniary and physical condition, Davis devoted three years and extensive research to the writing of what he termed an historical sketch of the events which preceded and attended the struggle of the Southern states to maintain their existence and their rights as sovereign communities. The result was a perceptive two-volume chronicle, covering the birth, life, and death of the Confederacy, from the Missouri Compromise in 1820, through the tumultuous events of the Civil War, to the readmission of the Southern states to the U. Congress in the late 1860s. Supplemented with a new historical foreword by award-winning author Bell I.
