Book Description This biography traces the life of Agnes Leclerc, a woman from small-town Vermont whose marriage at the age of 21 to Prince Felix Salm, a Prussian officer in the Union Army at the outbreak of the US Civil War, took her to the royal palaces of Europe. She accompanied Felix on his Civil War campaigns, followed him to Mexico to fight for Emperor Maximilian, then returned home to his ancestral castle in Germany. White's history details Agnes' remarkable dealings with such figures as Benito Juarez and Maximilian, and continues through Agnes' life of hospital work and quiet retirement in her later years.
