From Slipcase: This new, unexpurgated edition of an extremely rare classic in Civil War literature is an apologia in retrospect by the President Of the Confederacy who, upon his release from prison in 1867, attempted to justify the position of the South. In these volumes, which have been out of print for many years, Jefferson Davis examines the question of states rights and offers a detailed account of the movement toward secession and confederation.
An entire volunteer is devoted to the deplorable fact of warvictories, defeats, and the final subjugation of the Confederate States, with all the attendant evils arising from the bitter history between victor and vanquished. The Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government is an important contribution to an understanding of the political, social, and military forces at work during the Civil War years. It is authentic living history, a unique appraisal of that memorable conflict by a man who played a vital and controversial role in the shaping of America.
