This is a collaborative blog authored by students enrolled in Professor Mary Niall Mitchell’s history courses at the University of New Orleans. The contributors have chosen to study the lives of particular nineteenth-century individuals–some well-known, some more obscure, at least in our own time–in order to deepen our understanding of this pivotal era and how it has shaped contemporary society and culture.
