While all of the items in the First White House of the Confederacy were interesting, the 2 things that I found intriguing were the clothes and an oil painting of Jefferson Davis and his family. Those people were unbelievably tiny. The clothes were children's sizes of today. The oil painting of Jefferson Davis and his family was hung just above the photograph from which the painting was done. In the painting, the family looked very serene and happy. But, in the photograph, they looked tense and stressed. It was very telling.
