A Southern Spy

Record #:
Through her prominent position in Washington, DC society, Mrs. Rose O'Neal Greenhow was able to gather information of value to the South during the Civil War. Imprisoned by the North, then later deported to Richmond, she went to Europe in 1862 to try to win support for the Southern cause. On her return in 1864, her ship ran aground off Wilmington, and she drowned attempting to reach shore.
