A Museum Quality Art Print of Confederate White House in Montgomery AL. Most people don't realize that Richmond was not the 1st Capitol of the Confederacy, it was Montgomery Alabama, as Virginia had not yet seceded from the Union when the Civil War broke out in early 1861. This Italianate house built in 1835 was the first "White House" of the Confederate States of America. It belonged to Colonel Edmund S. Harrison who rented the mansion fully staffed for 5,000.00 a year. The home was only used for 3 months, from February to May 1861. Then Virginia seceded and Richmond was made the permanent Capitol of the Southern States. President Jefferson Davis and his young family then finished out the War in the Richmond White House.
