Author, Mrs. Greenhow Counter-Spy
Ann Blackman, author of  Wild Rose, Civil War Spy, and Rose Greenhow impersonator Emily Lapisardi engaged in a bit of cross-century jousting at the International Spy Museum June 9, 2005, when Mrs. Greenhow denied she was a spy and Ms. Blackman suggested the Washington socialite took up espionage because she had lost her social position with the election of  Abraham Lincoln. The two women entertained the standing-room-only audience with their varying points of view on issues ranging from spycraft to slaveholding. They were interviewed across the centuries by Peter Earnest, executive director of the phenomenally popular new museum in the nationís capital.
