A Government of Our Own: The Making of the Confederacyby William C. Davis stands as the definitive treatment of the formation of the Southern Confederacy, which took place right here in Montgomery, Alabama during the momentous first five months of 1861.

With the Sesquicentennial of the War Between the States upon us, it is a “must read” for all interested in Confederate History. It can be ordered here by clicking on this link.

 With appreciation and much thanks to Judge Mark Anderson, who arranged this visit, we are honored to announce that William C. “Jack” Davis and his wife will attend our Spring Wine and Cheese Gala Fundraiser on May 5th, 2011. There he will meet people, autograph books and speak briefly. Please mark your calendars and don’t miss this important event!

He will also speak at Archi-Treats at noon that day at the Archives and join the Montgomery Confederate Roundtable group the evening of May 4th.

 Jack, we are all looking forward to meeting you!
