This is an excellent biography of an actress whose career was contemporary with Edwin Booth and as famous. She was also the model inspiration for the The Angel of The Waters statue at the Bethesda fountain in Central Park NYC. She had a Boston Marriage with the sculptress. Charlotte Cushman is mostly unknown for the same reason many actresses are forgotten today once they become older. Men move on, women are often ignored once past their youth.
