“Tales of Civil War spies are often full of embellished and romanticized derring-do. Not so with Ann Blackman’s thoroughly researched biography of Rose O’Neale Greenhow, whose remarkable life needs no embellishment. The story of Rebel Rose, told here with great skill and lucidity, illustrates yet again that truth is stranger than fiction.”

James McPherson, author of Battle Cry of Freedom, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for History and pre-eminent Civil War historian

Now available in paperback!

 

For sheer bravado and style, no woman in the North or South rivaled Rose O’Neale Greenhow. Fearless spy for the Confederacy, glittering Washington hostess, legendary beauty and lover, Rose Greenhow changed the course of the Civil War and risked everything for the cause she valued more than life itself. In this superb portrait, biographer Ann Blackman tells the amazing true story of an almost-forgotten woman who made more history than anyone knew.
