Jefferson Davis, Unconquerable Heart

By Felicity Allen | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

My debt is total to my husband, Ward Sykes Allen, for help the whole way in every way. Support came from our children, Peter and Will Allen, Maude (Jeri) Earnest, and Mary Christine Bradshaw, and expert help from son-in-law David Bradshaw. My cherished friend Christine Langseth Benagh has nudged the bookalong from its very first thought, an informal and invaluable editor. I am grateful for various aid throughout the writing from other family members—Clare Allen, Jane Allen Gregory, the late Martha Hall McComas, Mary McComas McGavock, Jennifer Earnest and Guerry Clayton McComas. The help from our friends Walter and Jane Sullivan and Harold L. Weatherby deserves special note, but my gratitude goes out to many friends and acquaintances: Anne Amacher, Glenn Anderson, the Reverend Charles E. Baker, Wesley Baker, Thomas A. Belser, Col. (Ret.) Robert Bradshaw, Betty Jane and the late Bernard Breyer, Jonathan Buford, Robin Carter, Boyd Childress, Joanne and the late William Childers, Roger Cole, the late Helen DickDavis, Billie Emert, the late Reverend George A. Fox, Emmalu Foy, Joseph Hobson Harrison, Jr., the Reverend John Harwell, David Holt, Sam and Jacque Hornsby, Sara Hudson, Edward and Karen Jacobs, Hutch Johnson, Madison and Shailah Jones, the late Andrew Lytle, Virgil and Louise LeQuire, Taylor Littleton, the Reverend Germain Marc'hadour, James Nicholson, the late Miriam Patrick, Hunter and Virginia Peak, Kaye Reyes, Col. (Ret.) Edward R. Schowalter, Forrest Shivers, Martha Solomon, John Sophocleus, Craig Thompson, Mills Thornton, Michelle Ladd Trimmier, James P. Warren, and Elly and Peter Welt. I owe an incalculable debt to my friends and mentors, the late Donald Davidson and Curtis Howe Walker, who taught me writing and historical research, and much else, at Vanderbilt University. Special thanks are due the late James Treadway, for many conversations that steered me right about the war. Doctors James P. Himmelwright, V. S. LeQuire, Emil Wright, and J. David Hagan, in person, and Harris D. Riley, Jr., in writing, provided much-appreciated medical information, but they are not responsible for my use of it.
