Ladies and gentlemen on display : planter society at the Virginia springs, 1790-1860 by Charlene M. Boyer Lewis( )

13 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in English and held by 1,652 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
Elizabeth Patterson Bonaparte : an American aristocrat in the early republic by Charlene M. Boyer Lewis( )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 1,053 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
Artist in exile : the visual diary of Baroness Hyde de Neuville by Roberta J. M Olson( Book )

4 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Artist in Exile' is the first in-depth, illustrated exploration of the life and work of Anne Marguérite Joséphine Henriette Rouillé de Marigny, Baroness Hyde de Neuville (1771-1849), who arrived in America in 1807 as a refugee from Napoleonic France and embarked on an extraordinary journey of discovery. Her unparalleled, beguiling, watercolors and drawings--over 200, made while traveling through seven countries and on the high seas, published here together with previously unpublished documents and letters--provide an invaluable historical visual record of the early years of the American Republic and its racially diverse population. From this exciting material Henriette emerges as a cosmopolitan artist who exerted her influence in political and social circles on both sides of the Atlantic, courageously traversing the European continent, unescorted, to beg Napoleon to spare her husband's life. Neuville's status as a woman, and an outsider, made her a particularly keen and sympathetic observer of individuals from a range of socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds. She drew the earliest ethnographically correct images of indigenous Americans, together with vistas predating the works of other traveler-artists, and long-vanished buildings. Although she arrived in America as an outcast, by the end of her second residency, as the celebrated wife of the French Minister Plenipotentiary, she was interacting with political leaders and making her mark on society in Washington, DC and New York City. 'Artist in Exile' tells her compelling story
