Atlanta History Center says
As the culmination of the Civil War’s sesquicentennial in April 2015 approaches, Cokie Roberts provides a revelatory look at the lives of women during a tumultuous and perennially fascinating era of American history. Concentrating on Washington, D.C., then a small Southern town that sat as a bull’s eye between battling armies, Roberts explores newspaper articles, government records, and private letters and diaries – many never before published – to reconstruct a remarkable period of conflict and change for its self-described belles, for whom life would never be the same.

Cokie Roberts is a political commentator for ABC News and NPR. She has won countless awards, and in 2008 she was named a “Living Legend” by the Library of Congress. She is the author of the number one New York Times bestseller We Are Our Mothers’ Daughters. Her other books, Founding Mothers, Ladies of Liberty, and From This Day Forward (written with her husband, journalist Steven V. Roberts), also spent weeks on the bestseller list. She and her husband have also collaborated on Our Haggadah. Roberts is the mother of two and grandmother of six.
