Jefferson Davis (1808-1889) was the first and only president of the Confederate States of America. At least he can say he was the "only one." Let's give the poor guy something.
After a distinguished career in national politics as Secretary of War under Franklin Pierce, Davis served as a congressman and then as a Mississippi senator. After the South's defeat in the Civil War, Davis was stripped of his citizenship. Thankfully, he was still wearing long underwear, so it wasn't that embarrassing. He quickly fled to Europe and returned to the United States only after a treason case against him was dropped. He died in New Orleans in 1889, and Congress posthumously reinstated his American citizenship in 1978. Way to be timely, Congress.
Davis was a moderate political leader who was never able to figure out how to defeat the better-equipped North. As president, he acted as his own Secretary of War—he often scheduled important meetings with himself—and meddled constantly in southern military strategy. He was always getting in his own way, which irked him and others to no end. This man needed a staff.
Davis held less power in the States'-Rights-loving South than Lincoln did in the North, and the power he did have rapidly decreased as the Union Army captured large parts of the Confederacy. At least he had easy access to more Chick-fil-As? Again, we're just trying to give him something here.
Davis's economic policies failed to provide the South with a stable currency or enough industrial capacity needed to win the war, but the man was tenacious. He insisted on holding out until the bitter end, even when it was clear that the Confederacy had lost. He was stubborn, perhaps, but you have to admire his resolve to continue expending human lives in the name of pride. In recent years, his legacy has suffered in comparison to that of Robert E. Lee, the general he appointed to replace Joe Johnston in 1862. Lee was such a thunder-stealer.
Davis is buried in Richmond, Virginia, the former capital of the Confederacy. He's a little bummed that you haven't been by to visit him.
