Mary Tucker Magill

Mary Tucker Magill was a Virginia educator and author whose work portrays the generation of Virginians who endured the hardships of defeat following the American Civil War (1861–1865). Magill wrote two conservative textbooks in Virginia history, as well as a series of novels and short stories which, like her histories, depicted an idealized version of plantation life in the Old South. This photo of her was published in a 1908 edition of her First Book in Virginia History.
