about

A short look at the strange world of love,sex, and marriage in America during Victorian times (1837-1901).  No one better exemplifies the popular notion of the buttoned up old maid Victorian American prude than purity crusader Carry Nation.  Carry Nation is best remembered for crusading against alcohol, but she was also enthusiastically against tobacco, politicians, and sex.  She lectured young couples on the evils of buggy riding, she stopped women on the street to warn them against the dangers of seduction, and she wrote a newspaper column whose main theme was the evil of self abuse.  People like Carry Nation have given us a view of Victorian America.  We think we know the Victorians, but do we?  The same passions, strengths and weaknesses that exist now, existed then, but people organized themselves very differently.
