122 DAVIS, BURKE The long surrender.
New York Random House 1985 0394520831 / 9780394520834 Hard Cover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
319 pages, 8 plates, map endpapers, cloth, dj, very good. From the dj: The warnings from General Lee grew ever more urgent. 'Flee without loss of a moment,' General Johnston implored. And so began the flight of Jefferson Davis and his Confederate Cabinet as they sought to continue the war and also to avoid capture during the closing days of the Confederacy. The Long Surrender is a story of the Confederacy as only Burke Davis, one of America's foremost historians of the Civil War, can tell it. Burke Davis makes the reader eyewitness to history by following the Confederate leaders' race against time for personal survival as well as the dramatic capture of Jefferson Davis and his family and Davis' ignominious treatment by his captors - a cruel imprisonment which hardened Southern feeling against the North. As resentment in the South festered, slowly the image of a new hero began to emerge - Jefferson Davis, the martyr for the Lost Cause. Here too are the narratives of scores of Southerners who fought under Confederate battle flags: some who refused to accept the conditions of surrender, some who achieved new prominence and fortune, and some who fled the country - like Jo Shelby, who marched his troops across the Rio Grande into Mexico.

123 DAVIS, BURKE They Called Him Stonewall, A Life of Lt. General T.J. Jackson, CSA
New York Wings Books 1988 0517662043 / 9780517662045 Hard Cover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
470 pages, maps, cloth, dj, very good. Reprint. From the dj: Burke Davis brings the color, vivid characterization, and immediacy of the best fiction to this fascinating biography of Stonewall Jackson. He was one of the most brilliant and enigmatic figures not only of the Civil War, but of all military history was well. From the remarkable Valley Campaign through the Seven Days, Manassas, Antietam, Fredericksburg, and the masterful, though tragic, sweep at Chancellorsville where Jackson was felled by his own soldiers, this is a compelling narrative of men and war. Through diligent research over several years, Burke Davis uncovered previously unknown facts about Stonewall, and is able to correct many misapprehensions - though he glosses over none of the faults and eccentricities that gave Jackson the unique personality that rose so well to the challenge of the Civil War.

144 pages, well illustrations, maps, cloth, DJ, 10.5 by 11.5 inches, very good. From the DJ: With a running commentary by Pulitzer-prize nominee William C. Davis, each chapter focuses on one particular aspect of the soldiers' lives, such as the excitement of enlistment, the life in camp, or the horrors of battle, and lets the soldiers tell their own stories. Often forthright, and tinged with the sentimentality of their age, these voices of a lost America nevertheless speak clearly to us across the years. To illustrate these unique first-hand accounts are a series of contemporary photographs and a vast collection of authentic historical artifacts ranging from uniforms and weapons to personal letters and keepsakes. ; 144 pages

135 Davis, William C. Look Away! A History of the Confederate States of America.
New York Free Press 2002 0684865858 / 9780684865850 First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Good dust jacket 
Xii, 484 pages, 8 plates, cloth, DJ, very good. From Booklist: Acknowledging that "a good story deserves retelling often," Davis, a three- time winner of the Jefferson Davis Prize for Confederate History, retells the story of the Confederacy but with a different slant. His richly detailed, heavily analytical narrative pictures the history of the Confederate States of America as a "national experience." His book, then, is not simply a recitation of Confederate military strategies and battles won or lost; the Civil War, as he views it from the Confederate perspective, "was a political and social battle from beginning to end, at first to establish the Confederacy, but then for the next four years to define what sort of democracy that Confederacy was or ought to be." Davis excels at defining the psychology and philosophy behind secession, and he is equally good at delineating what went wrong with the Confederacy as a country. This is not a "defense" of the Confederacy but an understanding of its history as an episode of attempted nation building. An important addition to Civil War-era collections. ; 484 pages
