Sex, war, and presidential scandal: an all too familiar combination. In this episode of Thick & Thin, we go over a U.S. History lesson not taught in school — the Petticoat Affair. Our hero, Peggy Eaton. A woman known for her lurid past, caused chaos in the Presidential Cabinet when she married the Secretary of War, John Eaton. An event that ultimately resulted in the resignations of multiple Cabinet members.  // Follow me on IG: instagram.com/katybellotte // Sources: https://daily.jstor.org/why-hoop-petticoats-were-scandalous/ https://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/jackson-appoints-john-eaton-as-secretary-of-war-and-starts-scandal https://daily.jstor.org/the-mrs-eaton-affair/ eaton.html">https://www.womenhistoryblog.com/2013/03/peggy-eaton.html https://www.britannica.com/biography/Margaret-Eaton Learn more about your ad choices.
