Childhood contact with government officials, along with marriage to a man with a post in the US State Department, made Rose O’Neal Greenhow apt for her role in the Civil War. As a slave owner and staunch anti-abolitionist, she was a natural fit as a Confederate spy. Even during her 1861 house arrest, she shared the Union Army’s secrets with top military brass in Richmond. Ranking within the Confederate government and a government post abroad, along with her memoir’s publication, assured that her death by sea would not sink Greenhow to obscurity.
