The Mount Vernon Association, committed to promoting nationalism, counted among its strongest advocates Northerner Sarah Hale, editor of Godey's Lady's Book, the country's most popular journal. On the other hand, the principal story I tell is one in which Virginia women gradually withdraw their support from national political causes and embrace sectional ones. Such a transformation, I contend, took place in every Southern state. The closest parallels to the Virginia case are most likely to be found in the upper South.

Many of them were minor celebrities, familiar to their communities from their rounds of solicitations and from appeals in the newspapers. And when it suited them, they did not hesitate to remind the legislature and the public alike of their accomplishments. The pride felt by Virginia's first generation of benevolent women is attested to in an 1834 legislative petition by Eliza Carrington, cofounder and secretary of the Female Humane Association of Richmond. Ostensibly, the petition had nothing to do with the subject of female charity.

The political culture of antebellum Virginia was in some respects an oral one: speeches and debates were the centerpieces of political campaigns, and women influenced "their" men through conversation in the home and elsewhere.
