Austen was writing and publishing these timeless, engaging novels during a time of great tumult between the United States and Great Britain: The War of 1812. This conflict started to brew in 1811 (Emma), heat up in 1813 (Pride & Prejudice), climax in 1815 (Sense & Sensibility), and ended in early 1816. Dumbarton House’s primary owners, the Nourse Family, were in residence 1804-1813, and second resident Charles Carroll played first host to First Lady Dolley Madison at Dumbarton House on August 24, 1814, in her hurried departure from the White House as the British approached to burn it. Sense and Sensibility - $6.00
