Anna Dickinson

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter describes how Dickinson and her agent, O. W. Bernard, set off from New York. They visited Washington, D. C., Fredericksburg, Virginia, Richmond, Virginia and Norfolk, Virginia. Dickinson had an extended visit with Richmond Postmaster Elizabeth Van Lew, the famous Union spy during the Civil War. She also visited the studio of Richmond artist Edward Valentine. The letters in this chapter are full of excellent commentary on public buildings, monuments, and cemeteries. Dickinson also has much to say about the state of race relations in Virginia politics and the ways in which the southern states have recovered economically from the war.

Keywords:   Elizabeth Van Lew, Richmond, Edward Valentine, monuments, O. W. Bernard
