Portrait of Lydia H. Sigourney

Description

Known as the "Sweet Singer of Hartford," Sigourney's poetry and prose was popular throughout the 19th century for its strong emotional appeal, particular concerning mortality. She figures here as author of "Letter from the Charter-Oak, at Hartford, to the Great Oak of Geneseo," an 1843 poem meditating upon the Wadsworth family, the displacement of Native Americans, and the course of history
