Why do stepmothers always get a bad rap?!
“I Could Not Call Her Mother: The Evil Stepmother in Early America” explores the role of the evil step mother in early American popular culture
(with a glance into later pulp fiction and film noir!).
With her origins in fairytales and folklore, the evil stepmother was often portrayed as jealous, grasping, and greedy. She was vain, selfish, and cold. Above all else, she hated children.
What made this image so popular in early America that it infused a wide range of popular genres, from poetry and novels to news stories and prescriptive literature?

One hundred fifty years ago, in the summer of 1862, President Lincoln faced the specter of defeat. When Lincoln called for volunteers, a thousand men from Fairfield County enlisted in the 17th Connecticut to save the Union.
