Thanks for posting this profile! Teresa has been mentioned before, in a thread asking who was the "hottest Civil War woman". As the photo shows, she was quite attractive.

You are posting some great bio's. But I have a technical question. How are you posting the photos so they text wraps around the image. As you can see in my Quote, above, the photo usually goes above or below the text. Your photos are in the right margin.

Just curious.

But keep up the posts. If I can think of a person that would be of interest, I will let you know.

I find the story of Teresa and Daniel Sickles and the shooting of Philip Barton Key to be almost beyond belief. A soon-to-be Civil War general kills the son of the composer of the Star Spangled Banner, is defended in a murder trial by soon-to-be War Secretary Edwin Stanton, and acquitted using the first ever insanity defense!
