In February 1861, in an effort to prevent the impending American Civil War. Enjoying good relations with Davis, he served in that office longer than anyone else, but resigned under pressure from the Confederate Congress as the South's military position deteriorated. After the fall of Richmond, Seddon was arrested on May 23, 1865 and imprisoned with other Confederate officials at Fort Pulaski, near Savannah, Georgia. There were proposals to try him for the mistreatment of Union prisoners at Andersonville Prison, but President Andrew Johnson ordered that the charges be dropped. Seddon was released in November, retiring to his estate north of Richmond. Multiple notches at top edge. Torn near top left corner.
