civil War Veteran Major General Davis
When Davis finished high school, he really wanted to go to college. There was a problem though; he didn't have the money. He decided to join the Army; he didn't have to pay, and he would get paid as well. There was also a benifit to joining the Army, education.
Jefferson Davis fought in the Mexican War and the War of Antietam.
Antietam is battle that took place in the Civil war. This was another turning point for the union. this battle showed the north and the south that the north was gonna bomb the south like a nuclear bomb with broken atoms.

Robert E. Lee invaded the Union. A copy of his plans were given to Union General McClellan. McClellan was his lackadaisical self. He did not take full advantage of his foreknowledge. It was the one battle where Robert E. Lee lost. The most immediate effect of which was that it squarely put British sentiment with the Union. The United Kingdom was thoroughly anti-slavery by then.
Extra facts about Jefferson Davis/Movie
Jefferson F. Davis (June 3, 1807/1808 – December 6, 1889) was an American soldier, slave-owner and politician, and was the President of the Confederate States of America during the entire Civil War, 1861 to 1865. He took personal charge of the Confederate war plans but was unable to find a strategy to defeat the more populous and industrialized Union. His diplomatic efforts failed to gain recognition from any foreign country. At home he paid little attention to the collapsing Confederate economy; the government printed more and more paper money to cover the war's expenses, leading to runaway inflation and devaluation of the Confederate Dollar.
The North Eventually won the civil war and slavery was abolished. Though Jefferson's side lost, the north and south still gave him respect, as well as the BAttle of antietam.
