The figures carved into Stone Mountain are the Confederate heroes, Stonewall Jackson, Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis.
Uh, please check a history book. The Confederacy existed from 1861 to 1865, during the Civil War. Anything dated 1841 is a fake. If 1841 is a plate number and not a date, you still almost certainly have a replica bill and not the real thing.
There's no such thing, because there was no CSA until 1861.
The first President of the Confederate States of America.
The obvious answer is yes. But he proved to be a kinder slave owner than the others in terms of treatment.

The president of the US is elected for a four year term and could be relected; however a president of the Confederate States could only serve one six year term.
the first answer was "nothing", but I strongly disagree about that. Jefferson Davis did many good things for the people of the South, but not for the people of the North. Jefferson led his people to fight for what they believe in, even though what they believed in was wrong. Jefferson Davis was...

Yes. He saw it in a traditional, feudal context of 'noblesse oblige', believing that a slave's natural place was to stay in bondage, and that it was his own responsibility to treat them like a second family.
