The Crisis

The Crisis



Romantic tension develops between the four main characters: one, Virginia “Jinny” Carvel, the fashionable daughter of Comyn Carvel, a southern gentleman of the old school; another, Clarence Maxwell Colfax, her n’er-do-well cousin who becomes a stalwart cavalier in the Southern cause in an effort to win Jinny’s approval; the third, Stephen A. Brice, an earnest young lawyer from Boston who antagonizes Virginia by his zeal for Abraham Lincoln’s cause; and the fourth, Eliphalet Hopper, a hard-working clerk with ambitions to advance himself both financially and socially.
