Frasi Jefferson Davis

„It looked queer to me to see boxes labeled 'His Excellency, Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederate States of America'.“

— Jefferson Davis
Context: It looked queer to me to see boxes labeled 'His Excellency, Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederate States of America'. The packages so labeled contained Bass ale or Cognac brandy, which cost 'His Excellency' less than we Yankees had to pay for it. Think of the President drinking imported liquors while his soldiers were living on pop-corn and water! David D. Porter, [https://ia802604.us.archive.org/9/items/incidentsanecdot00port/incidentsanecdot00port.pdf Incidents and Anecdotes of the Civil War] (1885), p. 274.
