Description
1866 1st ed Jefferson Davis a Traitor? American Civil War Confederate Secession



“I worked night and day for twelve years to prevent the war, but I could not. The North was mad and blind, would not let us govern ourselves, and so the war came.”

– Jefferson Davis



Albert Bledsoe’s ‘Is Davis a Traitor’ is a post-Civil War book outlining his views toward the Confederacy and whether it should have been allowed constitutionally. The Civil War was fought over many reasons, and secession from the Union was certainly no small matter. Bledsoe defends the major Confederate figures such as Jefferson Davis and Robert E Lee and argues that they had to right to secede, given the status of the original Constitution.



According to Eicher

“Bledsoe’s argument amounts to showing the Confederates as the inheritors of the Founding Father’s dream… the work’s most lasting influence may have been to help release Jefferson Davis from prison.”
