Dwight David "Ike" Eisenhower (October 14, 1890 - March 28, 1969) was the 16th Vice President of the Confederate States of America, serving under President Hull. Eisenhower twice served as a Confederate States senator from Sequoyah and was the state's 6th Governor. In 1951, he was selected as the Democratic Party nominee for president; however, he narrowly lost to Whig Party nominee George Marshall in the 1951 Confederate Presidential election. He is often referred to as one of the most influential people in the history of Confederate politics.

As governor of Sequoyah, Eisenhower oversaw numerous civil works projects, including the formation of Sequoya's first Highway Commission. As a junior senator in the Confederate Congress, Eisenhower supported President Long's Fair Share policies and co-sponsored the Confederate Civil Rights Act of 1936. During the Great War, he was opposed to war with the United States and was a strong supporter of NATO. As Vice President he continued to advocate for Fair Share policies and "equal rights for all".

In 1951, he successfully received the Democratic nomination for President; however, he narrowly lost the election to the seemingly more moderate former Secretary-of-State and war hero from Virginia, George Marshall.

Only out of work for less than one month, Eisenhower was once again elected to the Confederates States senate in 1952, after a tragic automobile accident took the life of Senator A.S. Mike Monroney, the man who had replaced him before being elected Vice President.

In his second tenure as Senator, Eisenhower was one of the key figures in the transformation of the Democratic Party into the Liberal Party. Throughout his career he continued to push for radically progressive liberal policies, that often made him the figurehead for the Liberal Party. He served a total of 28 years in the Senate before retiring in 1967, just weeks after signing the Confederate Voting Rights Act of 1967.

He died of congestive heart failure on March 28, 1969 at the Jeffersonville Heart Hospital in Jeffersonville, Sequoyah.
