"Cushman had returned to America for a series of benefit performances as Lady Macbeth, the role that had launched her career twenty-eight years before. Those sold-out appearances in four northern cities would net over eight thousand dollars for the Sanitary Commission. She hoped to recite the ode on the eve of her return to Europe." (Gollin 39)
