First lady of the South by Ishbel Ross( Book )

1 edition published in 1958 in Undetermined and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This brilliant and engaging biography of Varina Davis tells of the early days of her marriage to Jefferson Davis, the controversial figure who would become president of the Confederacy. The story gives a detailed account of their life in Washington and Richmond, the years of war, and follows their journey during the weeks and months of escape and then - following Jefferson Davis' release from prison - exile. "EVERY move they made was noticed and commented on. She was accused of being friendly to the North, of harboring spies in her home, of feasting when others starved, of pretentious ways, of nepotism, of not reading the books which she quoted so freely, of extravagant entertaining in hours of crisis, and of meddling in politics and military affairs. Some of the stories were true; many were not, but it is self-evident that she instinctively generated heat lightning around her." - First Lady of the South. Includes numerous illustrations
