About Caroline Dandridge

Author and Historian

Caroline "Danske" Dandridge (November 19, 1854 - June 3, 1914) was an American poet, historian and garden writer.

Dandridge was born on November 19, 1854 in Copenhagen, Denmark to Caroline Lawrence Bedinger and Henry Bedinger III, the United States' first ambassador to Denmark. She was brought to the United States in 1857, living in Flushing, New York and later in Shepherdstown, Virginia.

In Shepherdstown, her mother purchased an estate called "Poplar Grove", renaming it "Rosebrake" and here the family cared for wounded soldiers during the Battle of Antietam. Danske married Stephen Dandridge on May 3, 1877. They went on to have three children.
