Called the "Queen of the Confederacy," the beautiful 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 Czar Alexander II 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." A small-town editor takes on the challenge of finding out what this woman and her world were like and how Lucy's spirit lingered over her home, Edgewood, S.C. for more than a hundred years.
