Jeff Davis's Presidential Star
It's almost like a Hollywood Walk of Fame star, but this is one for a guy you won't likely see celebrated in sidewalks among America's movie, sports, or political luminaries.
Jefferson Davis was the first and only president of the short-lived Confederate States of America. On February 18, 1861, he was sworn into office on the steps of the Alabama State Capitol (at the time also the Confederate National Capitol). A full-size bronze statue of long-faced President Davis stands out front, looking sad and perhaps a little regretful over what he'd done.
Regardless of Davis's glum presence, the Daughters of the Confederacy were proud of their native son. After he was dead they marked the exact spot on which he'd stood with a brass star-shaped plaque, which has since become shiny and worn from countless feet. You can stand there, too, and imagine what it must have been like to be Jefferson Davis -- but if you engage in a treasonous act you probably won't get a star.
