"My grandmother’s mother lived in our house. She used to tell me stories about the Civil War. There was a famous Confederate prison in Louisville, and she and her sister used to write to the Confederate soldiers who were being held there; they smuggled knives into the prisoners, hidden in the pies they baked." —D'Ann Fago
