Immediately following their marriage, Mary Edwards Bryan and her husband Iredell E. W. Bryan hurried to Louisiana where Iredell's parents Hardy and Maria Wyche Bryan were establishing huge cotton plantations in the upper Red River region near Natchitoches. The authors examine the revelations that arrival in New Orleans brought Mary and the rejection she thereafter experienced from her in-laws. They trace her forced enrolment at Mansfield Female College, her return to the Bryan family following scandal, her father-in-law’s attempts to separate her from Iredell, her pregnancy and delivery of a son, and her return to Georgia.

Keywords:   New Orleans Red River Natchitoches, Mansfield Female College, scandal, rejection, pregnancy, Iredell E. W. Bryan, in-laws, cotton plantation
