women in the civil war

“Our marriage was a real partnership for thirty-one happy years. Our tastes were the same; likewise our ambitions for the best attainments in life.”

And their ambitions were grand. John A. Logan was a candidate for vice president in 1884 and was being talked about as a candidate for president in 1888.

Mary Logan was a writer, penning articles for magazines, a book about American women, and this autobiography. After her husband’s death, she toured abroad, visiting many Europeans of note and seeing Egypt’s great pyramids.
