After reading Joseph Goulden's book review of "A World on Fire: Britain's Crucial Role in the American Civil War" ("When Britain sided with the South," Tuesday), I wonder whether author Amanda Foreman called CSS Alabama a "privateer."
Doggerel in an 1861 issue of Punch, the British satirical magazine, aptly expressed the nation's dilemma about the American Civil War: Though with the North we sympathize It must not be forgotten That with the South, we've stronger ties, Which are composed of cotton.

she notes that during the 10 years she bore five children (including twins) and cared for her husband, who had a bout of cancer.
