Preview

Even before Anna Dickinson left Interpines, she had already begun her campaign to repair her reputation and resurrect her public career. For the next five or six years Dickinson devoted her energies to a series of legal battles. She hoped that these trials would both restore her good name and win her financial reward. Each battle had its own complex strategies, delays, and frustrations, and over the years she worked with a variety of lawyers. In the end she would win more judgments than she lost, but the biggest victories remained out of her reach.
