3-DVD Set Debuts October 27
Kultur announces the new release of the 3-DVD set, Jefferson Davis An American President on October 27, 2009 for a suggested retail price of $34.99. For the first time ever on film, this revealing DVD presents the complete story of Jefferson Davis’ extraordinary life in three informative and entertaining full-length episodes.
Jefferson Davis was the Confederate States of America’s first and only president. But what few people realize is that Jefferson Davis had already lived half a century before the civil war began, much of which was spent in patriotic service to the United States of America. As an Army officer, congressman, Secretary of War and two term Mississippi senator. Davis was instrumental in founding the Smithsonian Institute, and was largely responsible for the current design of the United States Capitol.
This unprecedented documentary–five years in the making–covers Jefferson Davis’ entire life and includes:
· Unparalleled interviews with top Jefferson Davis Scholars
· Never-before-seen footage from Jefferson Davis’ boyhood home and the actual place of his capture
· Filmed on location at the United States Capitol, both Confederate White Houses, the West Point art collection, and many more institutions and private homes
· Extensive pre-Hurricane Katrina footage of Beauvoir (Biloxi MS), and Fortress Monroe (VA)
Jefferson Davis was a proud American, a loyal Mississippian and a sophisticated statesman and military hero. But he was also a husband, father and friend whose life spanned and reflected much of the 19th century.
