Emily Cooper 

QUEEN OF THE LOST, The story of Lucy Holcombe Pickens who charmed governors, generals, the czar, Tolstoy, Freemasons and filibusters and whose legacies haunted a small town for 150 years. Called the Queen of the Confederacy, Lucy Holcombe Pickens, in 1854, memorialized in print a martyred Freemason who tried to free Cuba; she married the once-wealthy, dispossessed governor of the Confederacy; attracted a czar who would be assassinated by those he freed; and was a friend of those who succumbed to the dying embers of the Civil War. She was queen of the lost. Emily Cooper, a former newspaper editor, publisher and congressional press secretary, tells the stories of this beauty, well-known in the 19th century, but seldom mentioned in the 20th. It was during Coopers 1971-73 interviews of Eulalie Salley that the author first heard about Lucy Pickens. Coopers first book, Eulalie, is a biography of the Aiken, S.C., woman who was a Suffragette and Realtor for Aikens early winter colony and who lived in Lucy's home.
