CIVIL WAR – THE FORGOTTEN PRESIDENT

Hi all: I came upon a great article by Tom Elben of the Lexington Herald-Leader which begins with this statement of fact:

“He was born in a log cabin in Kentucky, grew up to be president and led his nation through a bitter Civil War.

No, not Abraham Lincoln.

The other guy: Jefferson Davis”.

Great intro Tom to this forgotten history. 

You can read the entire story at:
