For the first time in eBook: The memoirs of Varina Davis, wife of Confederate leader Jefferson Davis and subject of Charles Frazier’s bestselling novel Varina. From his days as a West Point Cadet, through his military and political career in both the United and Confederate States governments and concluding with their relative seclusion after the Civil War, the lives of Jefferson and Varina are told over two volumes. While many injustices—both real and perceived—against the Confederate leader are rigorously defended throughout, the overall work is clear-eyed, and rich in detail and scope. Varina Davis is far from an impartial biographer, but there is much behind-the-scenes material to attract lovers of Civil War history.
