    I can't imagine Davis resigning for any reason -- it just isn't in his personality. As I said before, he would have appointed one of his cronies and I don't believe that Longstreet would have wound up with the ANV. Who takes over from Lee; however, is meaningless in the long term. No matter who takes over, the war would be shortened dramatically.
    Davis never wanted the presidency. He did want the post of commanding general of the Army of Northern Virginia.

      I named one in post #5. Is there a bag limit?

      But he had the presidency. I don't think he would have resigned it and have seen no evidence to the contrary.

        Someone else said he'd resign, not me.

        You did say a crony or two, yet only mentioned one, that's why I asked.
        As for Bragg, then who replaces Bragg, and why would the ANV accept a general who is Hell on Retreat? This is the second time for those unanswered questions, BTW.
