There the young Davis pursued his study of the classics. But this was interrupted by an appointment to West Point, a training ground for greatness. T h e document of appointment was signed by none other than J o h n C. Calhoun, the Secretary of War, and thus Davis was first linked with the statesman whose mantle as the premier champion of states' rights he eventually assumed. But once at West Point the young man was associating with many to whom his fate would be linked, whom he would know as commanders of friend or foe—a few of whom wearing Confederate gray were 30 not to see eye to eye with their President.
Half his brother's age, she had had a good classical education; had raven-black hair, a cream complexion, and the most lithe and graspable of waists, in an age that greatly admired such a thing in a nubile female; and was charming and well connected. In a letter to her mother after first laying eyes on Jefferson Davis, she wrote that she couldn't tell whether he was young or old (he was thirty-five, and the nearly fatal fever had left his cheeks somewhat gaunt); and she observed a certain dogmatism in his opinions.
But we can ultimately only guess about Davis. T h e historian who called him the Sphinx of the Confederacy was right. There is, however, the simple fact of age and health. Though Lincoln was less than a year younger than Davis, his extraordinary physical strength and his health—no doubt conserved, in spite of his own dark moments of spirit, by patience, humor, and selfconfidence—made him seem a generation younger. And this fact reminds one of another, more demonstrable fact. Grant was some fifteen years younger than Lee, and the significance of this fact has been emphasized by historians, who have compared the number of days lost from indisposition by the two commanders.
