The Fall and Rise of a man without a country – Jefferson Davis

Guest blogpost: Ron Coddington | Publisher of Military Images Magazine

THE FALL AND RISE OF A MAN WITHOUT A COUNTRY.—After his capture on May 9, 1865, near Irwinville, Ga., Jefferson Davis was held as a state prisoner for the next two years. He would live for more than two decades after his release from prison, and during that time posed for numerous portraits. The story of his post-war years is the final installment in a five part series, and it is exclusive to the Spring 2017 issue of Military Images magazine.
