|Ok, the pages are January, 1861 setting if you read both. But the thing that's bothering me in 38facts2 (first link) is
On January 15, 1861, Chase went to Fort Pickens in person to try to persuade Slemmer to surrender. When he was unsuccessful, Chase reported to Confederate President Jefferson Davis that in order to take Fort Pickens troops would have to scale the walls.
President who? Of where? Davis did become President of the Confederacy until February. In fact I thought the Confederacy didn't exist until the convention in Mongomery in February.
