FOR A TALK BY PROFESSOR JIM STANBERY ON: JEFFERSON DAVIS 
 

The Confederacy had two opportunities to select a president – first, at the meeting of its provisional congress, during balloting on February 9, 1861; next, through one of the last acts of the provisional congress, the election of a permanent president on November 14, after four ‘border states’ had joined the Confederacy.

What strengths and weaknesses did the man chosen, Jefferson Davis, show?  How did any of the other men actually considered for the presidency by the provisional congress compare with Davis?

Then the balloting nine months after the first election  could have included contenders from the border states seceding after Ft. Sumter and not belonging to the Confederacy back in February.  Were there any such possibilities?

Jim Stanbery was a history professor at Los Angeles Harbor College, where he also served as faculty president and won many outstanding teaching awards.  Jim is past assistant editor of Civil War Regiments and is active in the Civil War Round Tables of San Gabriel Valley and Orange County, as well as the San Pedro Bay Historical Society. He has published articles on western theater Civil War strategy and has spoken widely on Civil War topics in and outside California. Jim is the author of The California 2000 Campaign: The Populist Movement with a Meaning for all America.  Jim holds a B.A. (UC Berkeley) and M.A. (CSU, Long Beach). He also served two years in the Peace Corps.
