Long a tale of Albany folklore, the dress was said to have been stolen in 1931 during renovations at Loudon Cottage in Loudonville.

It is a story about the legacy of the Civil War, of racial and class disparity in 1930s America, of greed and ambition among desperate people, and unexpected loyalty in a den of thieves.
