This book concludes with John Tyler's death in a hotel room in Richmond, Virginia. The seventy-one-year-old former president of the United States was in the capital of the Confederacy to take his seat as the representative from Charles City County in the upcoming session of the Confederate Congress. In the brief period between secession and his death, Tyler had served his home state and the new Southern Confederacy well. As the head of a commission that successfully negotiated terms for Virginia's admission into the Confederate States of America, Tyler and his colleagues sealed the deal that moved the capital of the Confederacy from Montgomery, Alabama, to Richmond.
