The Texas Biography Series, Number 2: A Joint Projects of the Center for Texas Studies at TCU and TCU Press. This book reveals Edmund J. Davis, the heroic man who stood in strong opposition to his peers and better reflected the ideals of the nation than those of so many of his contemporaries. The author presents a long overdue favorable account of a man who was determined to make progressive changes and stand in stark opposition to the state's political elite. Davis was not only a part of the political elite during the Civil War, but he also opposed secession. He refused to follow most of Texas' leaders and actively opposed the Confederacy by attempting to bring Texas back to the Union. After the war, Davis was a leader in reconstructing the state based on true free labor and pursued progressive and egalitarian policies as governor of Texas. Through the entire reconstruction process Davis faced extreme Confederate hostility. After leaving the governor's mansion an unpopular man and politician, he still remained dedicated to changing Texas. He worked to change his adopted state until the day he died.
