1865 - Last Cabinet Meeting

April 20, 1865 - Confederate President Jefferson Davis meets with his complete Cabinet, or advisors, for the last time. Although their headquarters are on Tryon Street at the branch of the Bank of North Carolina, this final gathering is held at Williams Phifer's home on North Tryon Street. Historians will record that the meeting was moved to the Phifer House due to the illness of a Cabinet member.
