John Craven was personal physician to Jefferson Davis - former President of the Confederate States of America, when he was imprisoned after being captured in May 1865, at the close of the Civil War. Davis had been sent to Fortress Monroe, where he endured two years of solitary confinement, suffering the brutal treatment of his country’s conquerors as he awaited a trial which would never come. Craven was a personal physician to Davis for seven months of his imprisonment, and describes as few others could, the man and his experiences.
