Wild Rose

Record #:
Mrs. Rose O'Neal Greenhow used her high-society connections in Washington, D.C., 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, trying to evade a ship mistaken for a Union gunboat, ran aground off Wilmington. Greenhow drowned attempting to reach shore.
