The Democratic Party was the de facto single party of the Confederate States of America during the American Civil War from February 4, 1861 to May 5, 1865 when Confederate President Jefferson Davis and the Confederate Cabinet met for the last time in Washington, Georgiamarker, and officially dissolved the Confederate Government. The party supported states rights and the slave system. It was formed after the Confederate States declared independence and was thus the southern variant of the United States Democratic Party. After the end of the Confederacy, Confederate Democrats rejoined the United Statesmarker version of the party. The party represented southern Democrats and held a conservative ideology.
