Item description for Joseph E. Davis: Pioneer Patriarch by Janet Sharp Hermann...

In this biography of Joseph E. Davis, elder brother of and adviser to Jefferson Davis, award-winning author Janet Sharp Hermann provides a fascinating instrument through which to observe nearly a century of American history, from the Revolution and the War of 1812 through the Civil War and Reconstruction. Through his brother's influence and through his own ingenuity Davis encountered many who were prominent in the history of nineteenth-century America, including U.S. presidents, politicians, Confederate generals, and important figures of the antebellum and postwar South. The prism of Joseph E. Davis's life offers a vibrant portrait of an incredible century.

Reviews - What do customers think about Joseph E. Davis: Pioneer Patriarch?

Joseph E. Davis Revisited  Feb 25, 2002
Janet Sharp Hermann has done a magnificent job of portraying this giant of a man. It is a spellbound account of a time and a place now almost forgotten. Her scholarship and research talents are made plain by the way she brings out the nature of Joseph E. Davis and his relationship with his family and especially his servants. His forbearance and high-spirited way of coping with the adversity he faced over the destruction of his property during the Civil War and the after-years were inspiring.
