Little Men, Jo’s Boys, and five other books for children followed, proving the popularity of books displaying strong, creative girls who grow up to have interests aside from securing a husband. Alcott also published two novels for adults in the 1870s, Work: A Story of Experience and A Modern Mephistopheles. Yet she needed to keep publishing to maintain her entire family in comfort.

As a young woman in the 1850s,Alcott was determined to become the family breadwinner. Though her father was well known, he had never shown much interest in keeping his family out of poverty. At various times, Alcott was a teacher, governess, domestic servant, seamstress, and laundress (Moyle 1985, 225). Although informed by a prominent Boston publisher that she could not write, she vowed that she would succeed as a writer. In 1854, her first book, Flower Fables, was published. For the remainder of the decade, she struggled to make time for writing and managed to publish stories and verse in a variety of newspapers and magazines.

Not until Brigadier General James Bowen called in reinforcements did the crowd begin to disperse. Union soldiers moved toward the mob armed with bayonets.
