Jefferson Davis Devoted Three Years of His Life to this Work
Jefferson Davis devoted well over three years of his life, and he did extensive research to begin writing of what he called his “historical sketch of the events”. These were the events which preceded the Civil War and go all the way through the struggle of the Southern states of the Confederacy, their existence as and their rights as sovereign communities as members of a new confederacy of states. The result two volume work was the chronicle, or full covering the birth, life, and death of the Confederacy States of America. Starting with the Missouri Compromise in 1820, and going all the way through the tumultuous events of the Civil War, and then readmission of the Southern States to the United States Congress in the late 1860s. This work covers it all.

Jefferson Davis Epic Historic Account of the “Southern Cause”
When Jefferson Davis with the help of his friends, and wife, started the monumental work on his epic historic account of the “Southern Cause” called the “Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government’. Some of his reasoning was to express his neglected and ignore side of the conflict between the states for future generations to study, and understand. Jefferson Davis had been deeply effected by both the Northern victor’s vicious attacks on him, and his government. Jefferson Davis was also deeply hurt by the Southern dissenters, who had detracted the noble cause of what he had hope the Confederate States had stood for in its struggle with the Union.

Jefferson Davis Amazing Work, Showed the CSA Side of the War
As for Jefferson Davis, I feel the reason for his thought-provoking two set voluminous work is his wish to get the Southern side of the war out to the public, and for future generations to ponder. It was not as some scholars have state for his deep-rooted anger, and antagonism toward both his public and private enemies. It was an enormous undertaking that would required the help of many former Confederate staff members and soldiers.
