Implementation of a traveling exhibition with artifacts, a panel exhibition, an exhibition guide, and related public programs on the domestic slave trade from 1808 to 1865.

The Historic New Orleans Collection (THNOC) is honored to propose Purchased Lives: The American Slave Trade from 1808 to 1865, a multifaceted project exploring the history of the domestic slave trade from the abolition of the international trade in 1808 to the close of the Civil War. Purchased Lives provides resources for understanding the profound impact of the trade on the millions of enslaved individuals who found themselves forcibly separated from their communities and examines New Orleans’s role as the country’s largest and most profitable slave market. Comprising a traveling exhibition with original artifacts; an illustrated catalog; a slate of related public programs; and a facsimile-based panel exhibition, this important project will engage local, regional, and national audiences in exploring how slavery and the domestic slave trade has shaped American society.

Beauvoir, the Jefferson Davis Home and Presidential Library is located on 52 acres situated 500 feet from the Gulf of Mexico in Biloxi, Mississippi. The triple-thick brick Confederate Veterans Home Hospital, the Library pavilion cottage where Jefferson Davis wrote his books, and the Hayes Pavilion where his daughter Margaret Hayes and her family stayed during visits, were totally destroyed by hurricane Katrina. The Jefferson Davis house sustained severe damage to its porches, roof, and front rooms, exposing artifacts and historic frescos, and the contemporary museum was nearly destroyed with significant damage to collections stored and displayed there. Among remaining historical documents, artifacts, textiles, and paintings are the manuscript papers used by Davis to write The Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government and A Short History of the Confederacy.

Publication of Volume 12 and completion of Volume 13 of the Papers of Jefferson Davis. (36 months)

Jefferson Davis (1808-1889) was a U.S. congressman, Mexican War hero, secretary of war, and senator, president of the Confederate States of America, author of his wartime memoirs, and one of the most enduring icons of the Lost Cause. An additional Endowment grant will ensure publication of Volumes 12 and 13 of The Papers of Jefferson Davis, the definitive edition of documents by and to Davis. The published volumes comprise an essential research and reference tool for U.S. history during most of the nineteenth century and help illuminate ongoing repercussions from the era of sectionalism, the Civil War, and, in Volumes 12-13, Reconstruction. The project functions as well as the equivalent of a presidential library, bringing together not only Davis documents (his and his wife's), but also a complementary collection of other primary sources, monographs, research materials, newspapers, and maps, all made available to researchers. The project website offers instant access to considerable basic, accurate information about Davis and his times.
