    Abstract:
    Born on June 27, 1864, Varina Anne “Winnie” Davis was the sixth and last child of Confederate president Jefferson Davis. Tutored by a governess until she was thirteen, Winnie spent four years at a boarding school in Germany, where she learned to speak both German and French fluently. In 1881, her parents brought her back to America to live with them in Beauvoir (now Biloxi), Mississippi. Winnie was publicly christened the Daughter of the Confederacy at a veteran's rally in spring of 1886. Because of disapproval from both her father and the South, she broke her engagement to a Yankee lawyer in 1888. After her father's death, Winnie and her mother moved to New York in order for both of them to write. Winnie published two novels and died on September 18, 1898.
