  •  No. Wrong. Fact Check. (6+ / 0-)

    Jefferson Davis was Secretary of War under Franklin Pierce, 1853-1857.

    When Buchanan was elected, Davis resigned and was named Senator again from Mississippi.

    Secretary of War under Buchanan (until the Fort Sumter Crisis) was John B. Floyd (who was a very sloppy administrator, so sloppy in fact, that whether in 1859 and 1860 he was "running guns to Southerners" or was even aware it was happening, is a very open question.)
        But in any case it was NOT Jefferson Davis.
