Confused! Who were the presidents of the United States and of the Confederate States of America? My child has as an answer- The Union and the Confederacy each had a president. The president of the Union was Abraham Lincoln, while Jefferson Davis was the president of the Confederacy. Do you think this is the answer his teacher would want?
