Fanny: The Civil War in Louisville

Show Summary Details


This chapter chronicles the life of Fanny and her family during the Civil War. Helped by her husband's government post and with her sons too young to fight, Fanny suffered few of the deprivations that marked residents in other regions of the South. Still, as Louisville and Kentucky turned increasingly hostile to the Republican administration that her husband served, Fanny and her family felt an increasing degree of isolation due to the wartime tensions that marked Louisville during this period.
