PRESIDENT JEFFERSON DAVIS (CONFEDERATE STATES OF AMERICA) - CLIPPED SIGNATURE - HFSID 276815

 
Very desirable signature from a pivotal figure of the Civil War.
JEFFERSON DAVIS Clipped Signature: "Jefferson Davis", 7¾x2½ irregular piece of paper. Jefferson Davis (1808-1889), a West Point graduate and Mexican War veteran who had represented Mississippi in the U.S. House (1845-1846) and Senate (1845-1851, 1857-1861) and served as Secretary of War under President Pierce (1853-1857), was an ardent champion of southern rights but a reluctant convert to secession. Nevertheless, he served as the Confederacy's only President (1861-1865) and spent the rest of his life defending the justice of the "lost cause." Imprisoned at the end of the Civil War and eventually charged with treason, Davis was released on bail in 1867 and journeyed to Canada and then Europe. In October 1869, the treason prosecution having been abandoned, Davis returned to the U.S. Fold creases at "J and f" of Jefferson and "v" of Davis. Lightly soiled at edges. 1½ inch tear at left not affecting signature. Otherwise, fine condition.
