Visit the Virginia city where the great author brought his thirteen-year-old bride for a honeymoon. Antebellum Petersburg was a melting pot of French, Haitian, Scotch-Irish, and free black populations. It was in this eclectic city that the master of the macabre, Edgar Allan Poe, chose to take his new wife, thirteen-year-old first cousin Virginia Clemm, on their honeymoon in 1836. This book traces the steps of the controversial couple through imaginative scenes of historic Petersburg. From Poe’s own mother performing in the local venues to the poet’s lasting friendship with Petersburg native and publisher Hiram Haines, it reveals an overlooked moment in the young life of this literary giant.
