Star Marks Spot Where confederate president Jefferson Davis Was Sworn-in.

 Did The Daughters of The Confederacy Choose The Wrong star?

I think they intended to use the seven pointed star, no?

One way or the other, the star marker sits between the center columns at the front of the Alabama Capitol building, though there are reports Davis actually stood on a wooden platform built for that purpose over the stairs.
