I have been reading about action around Spring Hill Tenn. in 1864 and a fascinating side story about the death of General Van Dorn by Doctor George Peters, who felt that the General had an affair with his wife, Jessie Peters, who was reportedly quite lovely but trapped in a "cold" marriage with Doctor Peters.  The story reads that Jessie gave birth to a child exactly 9 months from the date of her engagement with General Van Dorn.  Anyone know of any links showing a picture of Jessie Peters?  I hope to visit Spring Hill and Franklin and learn more about the matter and killing of General Van Dorn.
