Title

Jeff. Davis Caused It

Subject

Confederate States of America

Description

The Walla Walla Statesman indicates that it was former C.S.A. President Jefferson Davis' stubborn insistence on full independence that made the terms of surrender particularly stringent.

Abstract

The Walla Walla Statesman reports on rumors that former C.S.A. President Jefferson Davis caused the terms of surrender to be more punitive. The Statesman editor has, at times, called for Davis to be tried for treason, although he has also expressed considerable sympathy for the former seceded states.
