(p.142) Chapter 8 Fanny: Postwar Trials
Cecelia and Fanny

Brad Asher

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter examines Fanny's family life after the end of the war. It discusses the increasing hostility of postwar Louisville toward the Federal government, and the role of the Federal courts, where Fanny's husband served as court clerk, in enforcing the new laws regarding African American rights. It also looks at Andrew Ballard's brief tenure as political editor of Louisville's Republican newspaper. Fanny suffered several emotional blows during this time, including the death of her father, the death of her daughter, and the decline and death of her husband. This was also the period in which she and Cecelia reconnected in Louisville, and Fanny bequeathed some small tokens of affection to her former slave in her will.
