Abstract

One hundred years ago, when the Confederate States' military efforts collapsed and the Civil War ended, Jefferson Davis, who had been President of the Confederacy, was indicted several times for treason. The subsequent proceedings, vividly recounted in this article by Mr. Deutsch, presented perplexing issues and questions of constitutional law. This is the first installment of Mr. Deutsch's story; the second will appear next month.
