Her story is inextricably tied with her husband's presidency, yet her life is an extraordinary chronicle on its own. From an aristocratic Kentucky family, she was an educated, well-connected Southern daughter, and when she married a Springfield lawyer she became a Northern wife--an experience mirrored by thousands of her countrywomen. The Lincolns endured many personal setbacks, including the death of a child and defeats in two Senate races. Mrs. Lincoln herself suffered scorching press attacks. The assassination of her husband haunted her for the rest of her life. Her downward spiral resulted in a brief but traumatizing involuntary incarceration in an asylum and exile in Europe during her later years. One of the most tragic and mysterious of nineteenth-century figures, Mary Lincoln and her story symbolize the pain and loss of Civil War America.--From publisher description+-+5595125155177312ocn008306802book19820.28Clinton, CatherineThe plantation mistress : woman's world in the old SouthThis study of the much-mythologized Southern belle offers a serious look at the lives of white women and their harsh and restricted place in the slave society before the Civil War. Drawing on the diaries, letters, and memoirs of hundreds of planter wives and daughters, the author sets before us the daily life of the plantation mistress and her ambiguous intermediary position in the hierarchy between slave and master+-+6807729485167014ocn010348440book19840.31Clinton, CatherineThe other civil war : American women in the nineteenth centuryHistoryIn the 19th century, women were pioneers; they migrated West across the Mississippi and had a major role in settling a new and hostile land. But they also were pathbreakers in the struggle against their inferior political and economic position. They were educators and suffragists, reformers and wartime nurses, artists and physicians. Women participants forged links with the major campaigns of the century: abolition, temperance, populism, socialism. Catherine Clinton deals with the great female leaders, including Elizabeth Cady Stanton, the GrimkeĢ sisters, and Victoria Woodhull. In addition, she chronicles the vital efforts of countless women who waged war not only in formal campaigns but also in their personal lives. Many appear rarely in traditional books: native Americans, prostitutes, poor women, black women, lesbians. Catherine Clinton has done an admirable job of placing women within the larger framework of the century's social history.--From publisher description+-+777165453514527ocn043859392book20000.23Clinton, CatherineFanny Kemble's civil warsBiographyA British stage star turned Georgia plantation mistress, Fanny Kemble is perhaps best known as America's most unlikely abolitionist, whose passionate writings against human bondage made her a heroine of the Union cause. Irrepressible in word and deed, Kemble captured the imaginations of many famous Americans of the antebellum era. Kemble's name became permanently linked to the issue of slavery when, in 1863, she published her most famous volume, "Journal of a Residence on a Georgian Plantation". The raw power of her words made for a powerful antislavery tract, which influenced European sentiment toward the Union cause. Passages were read aloud on the floor of the House of Commons and to cotton workers in Manchester, and the book was embraced by Northern critics as "a permanent and most valuable chapter in our history"+-+696993931513418ocn040460012book19990.39Clinton, CatherineThe Columbia guide to American women in the Nineteenth CenturyHistoryThe experience of women in the nineteenth century has generated a lot of research in recent decades. This book presents recent scholarship available in a concise resource, providing thus an authoritative source of information and interpretation. The authors emphasize areas in which scholars have identified important changes (such as suffrage and reform), topics in which researchers are now making great strides (such as racial, ethnic, religious, and regional diversity), and innovative and relatively recent explorations (for example, work on female sexuality). Accessible overview articles and alphabetical encyclopedia-like entries are combined in a comprehensive volume. Part 1 contains a historiographical essay followed by a ten-chapter narrative overview. These chapters include discussions of families and households, labor and the workforce, religion and morality, feminism and equal rights, reform and voluntarism, and more. Part 2 is an A-to-Z listing of concise entries on key terms, notable figures, political movements, social and religious organizations, and legislation+-+5674566875129111ocn071323394file20060.53Clinton, CatherineBattle scars gender and sexuality in the American Civil WarHistoryAddresses how gender scholarship has changed interpretations of the Civil War.

This unique volume brings together a wide spectrum of critical viewpoints by newly emerging scholars as well as distinguished authors in the field to show how gender became a prism through which the political tensions of antebellum America were filtered and focused. Through the course of the book, many fascinating subjects are explored, from new "manly" responsibilities both black and white men had thrust upon them as soldiers, to women's roles in the guerrilla fighting, to the wartime dialogue on interracial sex. In addition, an incisive introduction by Pulitzer Prize-winning historian James McPherson helps place these various subjects within an overall historical context. Divided House sheds new light on the entire Civil War experience, demonstrating how themes of gender, class, race, and sexuality interacted to forge the beginnings of a new society+-+898535046510252ocn039981229book19990.06Clinton, CatherineScholastic encyclopedia of the Civil WarHistoryJuvenile worksEncyclopediasTraces the course of the Civil War, year by year, using profiles of important people, eyewitness accounts, and period art+-+52772854057577ocn038856124book19980.24Clinton, CatherineCivil War storiesHistoryAnecdotesCivil War Stories is Catherine Clinton's fresh look at some everyday and extraordinary people whose lives were forever transformed by the impact of war. Two sisters, one a staunch defender of the Union, the other a passionate advocate of the rebel cause, are traumatized by the divide the Civil War imposes. Thousands of orphans, scattered from Maine to New Orleans, learn the hard lessons of the war at an early age. Clinton urges us to reconsider this fatherless generation's devastating losses. The war's outcome was acrimoniously contested after Appomattox. The story of two South Carolina women, one black and one white, illuminates that fires of bitterness raged even after surrender+-+03757857357142ocn042708215book20000.06Clinton, CatherineThe Black soldier : 1492 to the presentHistoryJuvenile worksChronicles the military accomplishments of African Americans who fought for the independence and preservation of the United States while struggling to be treated as equals and recognized for their valor and achievement+-+K7722104856941ocn052553734book20050.01Clinton, CatherineHold the flag highHistoryJuvenile worksBiographyDescribes the Civil War battle of Morris Island, South Carolina, during which Sargeant William H.
