This glimpse of a largely unknown and unseen side of the Confederate White House.  Sep 6, 2007
Award-winning author Rickey Pittman presents Jim Limber Davis: A Black Orphan in the Confederate White House, a children's picturebook revealing the amazing true story of a young black boy rescued from his cruel guardian by Varina Davis, wife of Confederate President Jefferson Davis. Jefferson Davis registered Jim as a free black child and became his guardian; Jim was treated well and enjoyed happy times in the Confederate white house during the civil war. Yet when the Union won, Jefferson Davis was imprisoned and Jim Limber was taken away by Union soldiers. Jim Limber was displayed as a "slave" of Jefferson Davis, though he tried to protest that the scars inflicted upon him were from his first master, not from the former Confederate President. By the time Jefferson Davis was freed from prison, Jim Limber had disappeared, never to be heard from again - what happened to him remains a mystery to this day. Earthy illustrations by arts teacher Judith Hierstein add a complementary touch to this glimpse of a largely unknown and unseen side of the Confederate White House.
A love story in the midst of war.  Jun 5, 2007
I found myself to be on a rollercoaster of emotions while reading about Jim Limber Davis. I was angered by his abuse; I found myself smiling as I read about his adventures with the Davis family and was saddened when he was abducted. The illustrations are incredible and bring the story to life. I look forward to hearing my grandchildrens reviews about the mysterious story of Jim Limber.
About Time  Jun 1, 2007
It is about time someone wrote about this tragic little boy. I have told this story to incredulous listeners for years. I am overjoyed to think that now more people will know this little boy's name and probable fate. A great Christmas gift with excellent art work and lively, readable text.
