My blog has been criticized because many of my posts about the wives of Civil War generals are more about the generals than their wives. There's a very good reason for that. The history of American women has been so poorly preserved that information about some of these wives is difficult or impossible to find. My choice was this: Tell their stories through the lives of their husbands or omit them entirely, just as history has done. Obviously I chose the former.
