General Robert E. Lee

President Jefferson Davis and General Robert E. Lee cooked Confederate Jambalaya & Gumbo in Mississippi at Beauvoir.
From 1877 until his death, this was the residence of Jefferson Davis (1808-1889), President of the Confederacy. Davis spent the last twelve years of his life at Beauvoir writing THE RISE AND FALL OF THE CONFEDERATE GOVERNMENT, which was in part a summation of his life. Beauvoir is an example of the "raised cottage", which takes advantage of the Gulf winds to provide the house with natural ventilation.
