First Lady of the Confederacy: Varina Davis's Civil War

by

A century after Varina Davis's death in 1906, Joan E. Cashin has written a masterly biography of this truly modern, but deeply conflicted, woman. Pro-slavery but also pro-Union, Davis was a fascinating woman who struggled with the constraints of her time and place. 29 halftone photos.
