I really don't like to pick on Jefferson Davis. The Confederacy had no business going to war (or thinking it could just walk away). Perhaps it was just too much to ask of one man who had no ability to make compromises or to admit that he wasn't Napoleon's equal.

That said, the ambitions of those who pushed for secession and confederacy far exceeded the abilities of the man they chose to administer it.
