From 1861 to 1865 seven then eleven states of the United States of America (USA) seceded from the Union to form the Confederate States of America (CSA). The Confederacy had a president, Jefferson Finis Davis, and he had a house in the capital of Richmond in Virginia. It’s the White House of the Confederacy.

The White House of the Confederacy is part of the American Civil War Museum. The other parts are the Historic Tredegar and the American Civil War Museum – Appomatox.

The White House was the home of the presidential family. The president’s office was elsewhere.

The first floor (aka ground level) is very ornate as it’s public space. The actual home was on the second and third floor.

The tour lasts some 45 minutes. If you’re in Richmond, it’s certainly worth a visit.
