Jefferson Davis Highway


The Jefferson Davis Highway was a project sponsored by the United Daughters of the Confederacy in the early of 1910s to commemorate the President of the Confederate States, Jefferson Davis. The planned route traverses from Arlington, Virginia to San Diego, California, however, it is unknown whether the plan was fully realised due to conflict between the National Auto Trail movement and the federal government. The location identified on the map is the Highway’s proposed starting point.
