Description: Davis is often caricatured as either a sociopathically evil mastermind or a hero led astray by his context. No one denies that he actively supported the institution of slavery, but apologists will dismiss that as the status quo of his time and place. No one denies that his side lost the war, but whether that was due to his colossal incompetence or the simple superiority of Lincoln and the north, well, you can find plenty of people arguing either side. McPherson, finally, does something new: an actual researched biography of the man, not his legacy. It's uncomfortable reading at times, when sympathy is evoked for a man doing a job he never asked for and bound by constraints beyond his control, because that job was splitting the union and protecting slavery. Historical revisionism is often negative, when people choose to rewrite the past to suit their present or future, but in cases like Davis's, it's a good thing. The default view of the man is filtered through histories written by Yankees and Davis's enemies. To get the truth, we have to get past the propaganda, and that's what the author did here.
