USC Professor Emerita Pat McNeely will discuss her new book, “Andrew Jackson, John C. Calhoun and the Petticoat Affair”. The scandal started when the Washington wives refused to socialize with the wife of Andrew Jackson's newly appointed Secretary of War, and the President personally ordered the women to include Peggy Eaton in their social lives. When they refused, the political battles over her virtue and character caused Jackson to dissolve his cabinet in 1831 and cost Vice President John C. Calhoun his chance to be President. “The government upheaval caused by the Petticoat Affair changed American history and made national headlines well into the 20th Century,” McNeely said. McNeely’s talk is co-sponsored by the Columbia Genealogy Chapter and the S.C. Humanities Council.
