Sam Ward, "King of the Lobby," and his three sisters, one of whom wrote the Battle Hymn of the Republic (the words), one of whom married the sculptor Thomas Crawford, and the youngest, who married a Bonaparte, certainly constitute an interesting family to read about. Their antecedents, their growing up in NYC (though none stayed there ultimately) and subsequent careers are conscientiously presented. The writing is somewhat unimaginative, I found, in contrast to the verve, spunk, and talent of the four Wards.
