Civil War Generals' Wives BOM - Month 11

This month's block is in honor of Ellen Mary (Marcy) McClellan.  Her marriage to General McClellan happened only after he proposed to her on nine different occasions over a span of about 7 years (and she rejected him all nine ccasions because she loved another man).  It is a rather astonishing story as to why she finally said "yes".  Sorry, but the material is copyrighted, so you must find other means to find out the rest of  the story.  :)
