Emma Spaulding's life might have been the simple story of a nineteenth-century woman in rural Maine. Instead, wooed by the ambitious John Emory Bryant, the Yankee Reconstruction activist and Georgia politician, she became the Civil War bride of a Republican carpetbagger intent on reforming the South.

The grueling years in the shadow of her husband's controversial political career gave her a backbone of steel and the convictions of an early feminist. Emma supported John's agenda-to "northernize" the South and work for civil rights for African-Americans- and frequently reflected on national political events. Struggling virtually alone to rear a daughter in near poverty, Emma became an independent thinker, suffragist, and officer in the Woman's Christian Temperance Union.

In eloquent letters, Emma coached her husband's understanding of "the woman question;" their remarkable correspondence frames a marriage of love and summarizes John's career as it determined the contours of Emma's own story―from the bitter politics of Reconstruction Georgia to her world as a mother, writer, editor, and teacher in Tennessee and, with her husband, running a mission for the homeless in New York.

In this extraordinary resource, Ruth Douglas Currie organizes and edits their voluminous correspondence, enhancing the letters with an extensive introduction to Emma Spaulding Bryant's life, times, and legacy.

This is a book about my Great, Great, Grandmother Emma Spaulding Bryant, and I am very, very, proud of her (and my Great, Great, Grandfather John Emory Bryant). The letters they wrote back and forth to each other during the Civil war are fascinating.

I found this book after reading "Carpetbagger of Conscience." Having an ancestor from Buckfield, Maine who was also a Georgia carpetbagger from 1866 to 1882, I wanted to have a better understanding of what he did. He (Charles Prince) is mentioned a number of times in this book and I learned a bit more about him but also what was going on in Georgia and the south at that time. Just saw the movie "Lincoln" and I recommend this book and "Carpetbagger of Conscience" to enhance understanding of the time period. The letters are fascinating and if you knew the women and men of Buckfield at that time you would be astounded as to how a tiny Maine town could have produced such folks who were active on a national stage.
