Editorial Reviews

Review

"Carter's study fills an important void. She is undoubtedly right that the South's single women found fulfillment in service to their society and families. But surely too, in being put to such good uses, they often felt sadly and sorely used."--Journal of the Early Republic

Book Description

Christine Carter examines the lives of antebellum and Civil War southern women who never married, uncovering the fruitful and interesting lives of single women--and the attitudes toward them--in the bustling urban centers of nineteenth-century Savannah and Charleston.
--This text refers to the Paperback edition.
