Louisa May Alcott Unmasked (F Alcott)
A sad product of war is the widows and women who lost their beaus. Nearly two million men and boys lost their lives as a result of the Civil War. One “old maid” was Varina Anne Davis, youngest daughter of President Jefferson who was born in 1864 and was called the “Daughter of the Confederacy.” She fell in love in the 1880s with New Yorker Alfred Wilkinson, son of Louisa May Alcott’s first cousin and grandson of abolitionist Samuel J. May. The match was most unsuitable by Confederacy standards. After a five year betrothal, they broke off their engagement and neither ever married.
