Richard B. Russell was a Confederate politician who served as the 21st President of the Confederate States (1958 - 1964).
His period in office is most remembered because of the escalation of Cuban Insurgancy. The economic growth that had begun under the Truman administration continued, and the quality of life among whites continued to increase.
