A Short History of the Confederate States of America

A Short History of the Confederate States of America is a memoir written by Jefferson Davis, completed shortly before his death in 1889. Davis wrote most of this book while staying at Beauvoir along the Mississippi Gulf Coast near Biloxi, Mississippi.

The book is much less a Davis memoir than an articulation of the secession argument.

According to a bibliography of the works of Jefferson Davis, this work was published in 1890 by Belford in New York. Though unclear from the citation, "Belford" likely refers to "Belford, Clarke & Co.", a publishing house established in 1875.
