Courtship and Marriage in the Nineteenth Century: Albion and Emma Tourgee, a Case Study

Record #:
Following the Civil War, Albion Winegar Tourgee, a Northern carpetbagger, moved to North Carolina where he made many contributions to his adopted state. Tourgee served in the constitutional convention of 1868, was a stalwart of the Republican Party, fought the rise of the Klu Klux Klan, and took part in the Union League. His courtship and 50 year marriage to Emma Kilborn was a reflection of the status of courtship and marriage in the second half of the 19th century in North Carolina.
