During the Civil War, Confederate President Jefferson Davis and his family lived in a mansion in Richmond, Virginia.

Now referred to as "the White House of the Confederacy," the residence was saved from demolition in 1896 and since 1988 has been restored to it's wartime appearance.
American History TV visited the house to learn about the Mexican War veteran and U.S. Senator who became leader of the Confederate States of America. This is part one of a two part program.
