I man I respect in our history that did so much to avoid the Civil War. His love shared between The Union with brilliant military and civlian contibutions, and his southern state roots. His parting speach to the senate in 1861 when Mississippi withdrew from the Union is a must read.

He offends no principle of man.

He bore burdens of two worlds.

Ten years foreseen a broken land.

He pleads, still war upon us hurled.

We who are called to serve must be
willing to bend, less we break or
die. Then we are placed in a hollow
grave and soon forgotten.
Great work.

I sure appreciate your heritage and I love the idea that you're standing next to me. Jefferson Davis's life was 9one of pure genuis. he was an awesome inventor and arcitect, He designed the dome of our White House in Washington, D.C. but that remains quiet so as not to make him a noted man...other than the War of Northern Aggression. I am rooted in the heritage of a grand tradition. I guess the Yanks must love us too as many are moving down here. The new Sun City is Valdosta, georgia instead of Florida now.
Keep up that march, kind gentleman. I nee you to help me out.

Ed, this is a fine poem. Though we can never forget the Civil war, most of us don't remember the facts of that time as well as others.
This helps us remember,and that's a good thing!

You might get some harsh words here, but I assume you are aware of that. Yes, he was a man of honor. I agree completely. It must have been a awful time for him, no matter which side he chose.

This was helpful to me. My great-grandfather was born during hte Civil War and was named Jefferson Davis Linville. I doubt they knew what you have shared but it's helpful to me.
