The Alcotts and the Marches: Louisa May Alcott's true and fictional families

Louisa May Alcott is best known as the author of the 1868 novel Little Women. Many have assumed the Marches were a genuine reflection of the Alcott family. While each had four sisters, a venerable mother, and long lost wealth, the daily struggles of the Marches paled in comparison to the crushing poverty, and mental and physical illnesses that plagued the Alcotts.
