Assessing Davis’s Cabinet Members

“Although the members of the Confederate cabinet were, as individuals, talented and capable men, they were not particularly effective. The cabinet really never worked well together as a team. Some of them did not stay in office long enough to be effective. Others, arguably, were not effective because they stayed too long.”

(Confederate Cabinet Departments and Secretaries, p. 24)

  1. I was wondering if you have read “Look Away!: A History of the Confederate States of America” and what you thought of it. I read it a few years ago and thought it was a good read.


  2. Haven’t read that particular book, but I have read several others by William C. Davis. A very good author and historian. That title’s going on my “to-read” list! So many books, so little time! 🙂
