A lecuture by Catherine Clinton, who is widely regarded as one of the preeminent historians of the antebellum South and American women in the 19th century. In FANNY KEMBLE'S CIVIL WARS, Clinton recounts the story of a British stage star turned Georgia plantation mistress, who is best known as America's most unlikely abolitionist. Bringing to bear the tools of both history and biography, Catherine Clinton reveals how one woman's life reflected in microcosm the public battles- over slavery, the role of women, sectionalism- that fueled our nation's greatest conflict and have permanently marked our history.
