Local judge writes historical novel

  • Wednesday, April 16, 2014


Davis Maring, a former circuit judge, has just published his fifth novel, Jefferson Davis Before He Wore Confederate Gray. The book remains true to the historical perspective, as it explores the factors that influenced Davis, and the political climate that ultimately led him to accept the Presidency of the Confederacy. By the end of the novel, the reader will understand Davis’ philosophy on the Constitution and his view of the proper relationship of the States to Washington.

Despite the fact that Davis is an extremely interesting figure, he has never been the subject of fiction. Maring’s flow of words carries the reader down the path that Davis took as he becomes an American hero in the Black Hawk War after his graduation from West Point.

Maring is now writing another historical novel, Lincoln: Before The Conflict, which he hopes will be completed in January, 2015.

The author will autograph copies of his novel, on Jefferson Davis, at Clock Tower Books at 105 Screven St. in Georgetown, on Saturday, May 10 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
