Louisa Susanna McCord

[courtesy of Southern Womanhood and Slavery: A Biography of
Louisa S. McCord, 1810-1879.
Columbia: University of Missouri Press,
2003, pp. xiv. 216, Leigh Fought]

Louisa Susanna McCord, political theorist, essayist, poet, and book reviewer, was almost unique among antebellum southern women. Her published works fill two volumes and deal with subjects hardly touched by her female contemporaries. At the same time, she administered a plantation, supported her family, and—during the Civil War—was the hard-hitting superintendent of an army hospital. She was in many ways an emancipated woman.

Daughter of Langdon Cheves. Louisa was well educated and confident of her abilities
