Guest Post: The Strong Women of Copper

BBC America is premiering its first original series Copper this week. The story follows Kevin Corcoran, an Irish-American boxer-turned-cop (played by Tom Weston-Jones) who returns to New York from the Civil War. His wife has vanished; his daughter is dead. Kevin sets out to discover what happened to his family as he patrols the sketchy Five Points neighborhood. And he receives a little help from two wartime buddies. Both men.
