21041 Maggie Mitchell CDV  Mitchell was an
actress. She was a Confederate sympathizer at the
onset of the Civil War , but later moderated her
views. She reportedly danced on an American
flag while performing in Montgomery, Alabama,
but later denied doing so. Her southern
sympathies, charismatic personality and
profession made her a warm, close friend of John
Wilkes Booth, but also earned her the admiration
of Abraham Lincoln, who invited her to tea in the
Executive Mansion and enjoyed her
performances at Ford's Theatre. Back marked
Case & Getchell, Boston.  $95
