Summary
Jefferson Davis, who served as president of the Confederate States of America, was often criticized as an ineffective figurehead during the Civil War. In Embattled Rebel, award-winning Civil War historian James McPherson argues that Davis was a tireless worker who visited the front lines, strove to manage his contentious military leaders, and opposed ill-advised demands from the state governors. Though he was unavoidably swamped with bureaucratic duties, he passionately advocated the South's cause, even after General Robert E. Lee's surrender at Appomattox. This engrossing biography provides a finely crafted account of Davis' life. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
