    Marie Alexandrovna, only daughter of Tsar Alexander II of Russia. She married Alfred, and became Duchess of Connaught. At first, Victoria was not fond of this daughter-in-law, and Marie returned the favour. And Marie loved rubbing the fact that she was born Imperial in her mother-in-law's face, with her jewels and personal wealth being greater than Victoria's. But Victoria privately admitted that she admired Marie for standing up to her.

    Dead set legend: Mary Edwards Walker (November 26, 1832 - February 21, 1919) was an American feminist, abolitionist, prohibitionist, alleged spy, prisoner of war and surgeon. She is one of only eight civilians, and the only woman ever to receive the Medal of Honor.

    She is still known in history as Joanna the Mad (a.k.a, Joanna la Loca), but if you ask me, the history books have it wrong - Juana was not mad but was definitely betrayed by all the men in her life - her husband, her father, and then her own son. A tragic tale but she fascinates me.

    The Gullah trace their heritage directly to the skilled rice farmers of Sierra Leone, West Africa. They were enslaved for these skills and forced to work on rice plantations in South Carolina, Georgia and Florida. The swampy conditions made it uncomfortable for the plantation owners so they left the Gullah people mostly unattended. The isolation allowed Gullah dialect, customs and art to survive undiluted for 100 years. One of the hallmark's of Gullah culture is sweet grass basket "sewing."
