Dianne Hi, Trudy!

Fanny's story adds a real human element to my understanding of the Civil War. War takes its toll on families, and not just on those who send their sons off to the battlefield. I wonder whether Frances's many physical ailments were partly a result of her living a life that she may not have chosen- being in the public eye, when she perhaps may have preferred living a quieter life.
