With the publication of my children’s book, Jim Limber Davis: A Black Orphan in the Confederate White House, I realized at my signings how little people knew about the President of the Confederacy. Jefferson Davis, a man honored by the schools, streets, schools, and other things named after him, is a man that America has yet to know. The look on people’s faces when I tell them that Davis adopted a free child of color is priceless.
One of the best books about him is Was Jefferson Davis Right? by the Kennedy brothers, Pelican Publishing. This book will change the way you view history. A must read if you care anything about the Civil War (and how it changed everything about America). Here are some endorsements of this book:
Charley Reese, nationally syndicated columnist: “Every American ought to read this brilliant new book by the Kennedy brothers.”
Thomas Fleming, editor of Chronicles: A Magazine of American Culture. “Decisively refuting all the old slanders, the authors give us back the real Davis–a patriotic soldier, a reluctant secessionist, the model of a Christian gentleman, and an inspiration to all Americans, North and South.”
