Congratulations to Candy Hooper, president of the JF Library Foundation Board of Directors, on the upcoming publication of her book, "Lincoln's Generals' Wives: Four Women Who Influenced the Civil War for Better and for Worse".
Catherine Clinton, author of Mrs. Lincoln: a Life, says “Candice Hooper’s vivid new look at the lives of these Union generals’ wives reveals a hidden chapter of Civil War history. Brimming with rich detail, Hooper’s brisk and beguiling narrative weaves together the military and the personal to introduce a fascinating cast of characters . . . These Union women emerge from the shadows and take their rightful place in the forefront of Civil War women’s history.”
