A Compilation of the Messages and Papers of the Confederacy (2 vols.)

Overview

Explore a unique piece of American history’s bloodiest conflict with the Messages and Papers of the Confederacy. A companion to James D. Richardson’s celebrated Message and Papers of the Presidents, these volumes illuminate the counterpart governmental and diplomatic operations of the Confederacy during the Civil War. They contain all of Confederate President Jefferson Davis’ addresses, proclamations, and messages, as well as the classified correspondence of the Confederate State Department. Richardson also provides biographical sketches of the most significant figures in the Confederate government, including President Davis, Robert E. Lee, Alexander H. Stephens, and Robert Toombs.

Seeking to leave an objective, convenient, and enduring record, Richardson makes no comment on the historical documents and presents his biographies “without any sectional or political bias.” These volumes provide invaluable firsthand insight into the actions and attitudes of the Confederate government, and will fascinate any historian or social scientist.
