DescriptionJefferson Davis Autograph Quotation Signed from his book, The Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government. One page, 5" x 6.5", n.p., n.d. [ca. 1885]. This lengthy quotation from the former Confederate president's memoir was made "To the Ladies of the Fair at Bangor, with the respects of Jefferson Davis." In full:
"That the affection, the mutual desire for the mutual good, which existed among our Fathers, may be weakened in succeeding generations by the Denial of right and by hostile demonstrations, until the equality guaranteed but not secured within the Union, may be sought for without it; must be evident to even a careless observer of our race. It is time to be up and doing. There is yet time to remove the causes of dissension and alienation, which are now distracting, and have for years past divided the country" (The Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government. 45-46. New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1881. 45-46). On toned paper. Matted with an engraving of Davis for an overall size of 13.75" x 11".
