Elizabeth Patterson Bonaparte : an American aristocrat in the early republic by Charlene M. Boyer Lewis( Book )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yearning for the life of a European aristocrat, Elizabeth Patterson wed Jerome, Napoleon Bonaparte's youngest brother, after a whirlwind American courtship. The French emperor had different plans and broke up the marriage despite Elizabeth's pregnancy and the subsequent birth of a son. In this expertly researched and carefully documented biography, Lewis tells the personal saga of a woman scorned, in the process revealing much about this country's debates over the creation of a national culture and the role of women within it. The scandalous behavior of Madame Bonaparte, for some time well known to the American public, was fodder for novels, plays, and even a couple of early Hollywood movies
Ladies and gentlemen on display : planter society at the Virginia springs, 1790-1860 by Charlene M. Boyer Lewis( Book )

9 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Each summer between 1790 and 1860, hundreds and eventually thousands of southern men and women left the diseases and boredom of their plantation homes and journeyed to the healthful and entertaining Virginia Springs. At the springs, visitors, as well as their slaves, interacted with one another and engaged in behavior quite different from the picture presented by most historians. In this book, Charlene Boyer Lewis argues that the Virginia Springs provided a theater of sorts, where contests for power between men and women, fashionables and evangelicals, blacks and whites, old and young, and even northerners and southerners played out away from the traditional roles of the plantation. In their pursuit of health and pleasure, white southerners created a truly regional community at the springs. At this edge of the South, elite southern society shaped itself, defining what it meant to be a "Southerner" and redefining social roles and relations
