38 CARDS, DON'T KNOW HOW MANY IT HAD ORIGINALLY AND NO IDEA HOW IT WAS PLAYED ~ CARDS IN GOOD SHAPE ~ Sam Davis (1842–1863) is called the Boy Hero of the Confederacy. He was born in Smyrna, Tennessee. He served in various combat roles in the Confederate army in 1861 through 1863 during the American Civil War. As a Confederate courier, he was captured on November 20, 1863, and upon suspicion of espionage was executed by the Union Army after a captivity of only seven days.
