The poor women saw her husband killed in front of her eyes, all three of her son' died before her, all her brothers died while fight n for the Confederacy if memory serves. How much tragedy can a human being take before goimg insane? What is cruel was how how people went after her without pity.

Well to be fair some of it was self inflicted, the whole postwar everyone should owe me because of my debts............Don't think anyone had held a gun to her head forcing her to run round spending money like a drunken sailor in Bangkok.................especially a little tone deaf during war years when others are being asked to make sacrifices.........

She certainly did have her share of personal tragedy, as did a considerable part of the nation.
