Civil History of the Government of the Confederate States with Some Personal Reminiscences

Civil History of the Confederate States

The cover of J. L. M. Curry's Civil History of the Government of the Confederate States with Some Personal Reminiscences (1901) displays a shortened version of the book's title. The seal of the Confederate States with its motto Deo Vindice ("God will prove us right") is also included on the cover. The official Confederate seal has been modified, however—George Washington, usually at the center, has been replaced by a Confederate general, probably Robert E. Lee.
