Candice Candeto | Robert Stewart's Natchez Furniture Shop

Born within a year of James K. Polk, Robert Stewart's life and career parallels the 11th President's in many ways. Stewart's business in antebellum Natchez, Mississippi, has much to teach us about craft, labor, business, and society in Polk's America, as well as the decorative arts of the too-often-forgotten Gulf South.
