1985 stated first edition, first printing partial cloth hardcover and dust jacket. Light shelfwear and one small tear on dust jacket. Hardcover book looks unread. Light fade at top edge of boards. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; When Jefferson Davis and his cabinet fled Richmond during the closing days of the Confederacy, they sought to avoid capture and continue the war.

Of course it was in vain. Davis and his family were captured. The Union warders treated him shabbily. The South saw him as a hero, a martyr for the Lost Cause.

THE LONG SURRENDER contrasts two of history's most significant figures, Jefferson Davis and Robert E. Lee, and shows how profoundly their contrasting views of the New South affected modern American attitudes.
