Civil War Soap Opera

I thought I would share this with my readers. Last Saturday, I had this idea: if there were Soap Operas during the Civil War era what would they be called? You have to relieve that this thought crossed my mind after I had consumed an entire Costco cupcake. Well this is what I have come up with so far:


• As the Hoop Skirt Sways
• Northern Light
• All My Generals
and finally:

• Port Hudson

But wait there’s more! I began to think of prospective plot lines and I came up with instead of the modern story of a character coming “out of the closet,” the 1860s version would have a character coming out as an abolitionist.

Well there goes my reputation as a serious scholar…
