Although it wasn't the main theme of my high school thesis, I think the basis for the name of my thesis was that Davis was the only confederate leader who was jailed at the conclusion of the Civil War. (See below: https://www.quora.com/Were-Confederate-generals-prosecuted-after-the-Civil-War). After the prosectors failed in their original plan to charge Davis with involvement in the assassination of Lincoln, they ultimately charged him with Treason, for leading the confederate states into secession. (See below link).
