Widow's Weeds and Weeping Veils:
Mourning Rituals in 19th Century America

The Victorian era both in Europe and America saw the rituals of mourning rise above the practical use of providing closure for those left behind. Mourning became an art form through which not only grief but also religious feeling, social obligation, and even fashion could be expressed. "Widow's Weeds and Weeping Veils" explores how people viewed death and dying, describing the cultural and social changes that occurred as a result of the historical events of their time. This concise, informative work is ideal for Civil War enthusiasts and anyone interested in Victorian era culture.
