Jefferson Davis led a fascinating life as a politician who fought to establish the Confederate States of America. After being wounded during the Mexican-American War, Davis served the state of Mississippi in the U.S. Congress 1835 to 1861. When Mississippi seceded from the Union, Davis was appointed president of the Confederate States. During his term, Davis worked to involve foreign governments, increase industrialization, and raise the massive armies needed to defend the South. Davis was forced to flee Virginia as it was invaded by Union forces; he was later captured in Georgia and tried for treason by the U.S. government. In 1868, the government dropped its case , allowing Davis to retire. From 1878 until 1889, Davis lived at Beauvoir, a Biloxi, Mississippi home only yards from the balmy Gulf of Mexico. This tree was grown from a seed handpicked from one of the ancient Live Oak trees flanking Davis' home.
