JEFFERSON DAVIS (1808-1889), the only President of the Confederate States of America (1861-1865), had been Secretary of War in the Cabinet of President Franklin Pierce from 1853-1857. A West Pointer and veteran of the Mexican War battles of Monterrey and Buena Vista (under Zachary Taylor), Davis was also an experienced legislator. He represented Mississippi in the House (1845-1846) and the Senate (1847-1851, 1857-1861) leaving the U.S. Senate after his state seceded. After the Civil War, Davis was charged with treason and other crimes and imprisoned at Fortress Monroe. Denied the trial he demanded, Davis' treatment brought outcries from admirers in both the North and the South, and he was finally released on bond.
