THE FIRST TIME ON FILM
A COMPLETE LIFE OF JEFFERSON DAVIS
IN THREE EPISODES

Jefferson Davis, an American President

Jefferson Davis was the Confederate States of America’s first and only president. But what few people realize is that Jefferson Davis had already lived half a century before the Civil War began—much of which was spent in patriotic service to the United States of America. As an Army officer, congressman, Secretary of War, and two-term Mississippi senator, Davis was instrumental in founding the Smithsonian Institution, and was largely responsible for the current design of the United States Capital.

This unprecedented documentary feature film–five years in the making—covers Jefferson Davis’ whole epic life.

Special thanks to Compatriot Percival Beacroft the Executive Producer, who produced and funded this project.
