President of the Confederate States of America

— 1861 - 1865 —

Jefferson Davis
———————-
Exponent of
Constitutional Principals

Defender of
the Rights of States
———————-
Crescit occulto velut
arbor aevo fama

Right of Pedestal:
With constancy and courage unsurpassed, he sustained the heavy burden laid upon him by his people.
When their cause was lost, with dignity he met defeat, with fortitude he endured imprisonment and suffering, with entire devotion he kept the faith.

Left Marker:
The Army
of
the
Confederate
States
———————-
From
Sumpter
to
Appomattox
four years of
unflinching struggle
against
overwhelming odds
———————-
Glory ineffable these around their dear land wrapping,
wrapt around themselves the purple mantle of death.
Dying, they died not at all, but, from the grave and its shadows,
valor invincible lifts them glorified ever on high.

Right Marker:
The Navy
of
the
Confederate
States
———————-
Giving new
examples of heroism
Teaching new
methods of warfare
It carried
the
Flag of the South
to the
most distant seas.
———————-
If to die nobly be ever the proudest glory of virtue, this of all men has fortune greatly granted to them; for, yearning with deep desire to clothe their country with freedom, now at the last they rest full of an ageless fame.
