A rare Sephardic Jew in the Old South and a favorite of Jefferson Davis, Judah P. Benjamin has been described as “the brains of the Confederacy”. He held three successive Confederate cabinet posts-attorney general, secretary of war, and secretary of state-but some have questioned Benjamin’s loyalty to Davis and the extent of his influence. More than 140 years after Benjamin’s first appeared on the Confederate scene, historians still debate his place in the history of the Confederate Cause. Robert Douthat Meade’s absorbing account of the life of this enigmatic Civil War Figure, who built a second brilliant career in England after the war, remains the definitive study of Benjamin.
