In 1907, Woodrow Wilson and his wife Ellen were having troubles after a death in the family. Woodrow left home and took a trip to Bermuda where he met Mary Peck. The two began an affair which Ellen later called the only affair the only unhappiness her husband ever gave to her. The affair apparently left Woodrow guilt stricken. After Ellen died, Wilson attempted to start a new relationship with Edith Galt. But, the Washington media attacked their relationship which made it hard for them to continue seeing each other.
