Eugenia (nee) Dunlap Potts was the author of: The Song of Lancaster, Kentucky (1874), Historic Papers on the Causes of the Civil War (1909), Idle Hour Stories (1909), A Kentucky Girl in Dixie, Short Mountain Trail, Stories for Children, The Housekeepers' Olio, and Home Talks. "No pen or brush can picture life in the old Southern States in the ante-bellum days. The period comprehends two hundred and fifty years of history without a parallel. A separate and distinct civilization was there represented, the like of which can never be reproduced. Socially, intellectually, politically and religiously, she stood pre-eminent, among nations. It was the spirit of the cavalier that created and sustained our greatness. Give the Puritan his due, and still the fact remains. The impetus that led to freedom from Great Britain, came from the South. A Southern General led the ragged Continentals on to victory. Southern jurists and Southern statesmanship guided the councils of wisdom. The genius of war pervaded her people. She gave presidents, cabinet officers, commanders, tacticians and strategists. Her legislation extended the country's territory from the Atlantic to the Pacific. "
