The Scandalous Lives of Carolina Belles
Marie Boozer and Amelia Feaster
Author: Tom Elmore
Publisher: The History Press
The mother and teenage daughter of the title were notorious in Civil War Columbia — the “tabloid queens” of their day, if there had been tabloids then. Feaster, a Philadelphia-born widow, aided the Union war effort, while her daughter Marie was mostly just infamous for her involvement in various scandals. Elmore, who has written two previous nonfiction books related to the war and Columbia, tracks down the facts after sorting through myths and legends that have been published over the years about the two women and their links to rich and powerful men at home and abroad.
