Warrior Women: Lady Spies in the Civil War

Posted in Memory by Andy Hall on January 14, 2013

GreenhowRosalind Miles, co-author of Warrior Women: 3000 Years of Courage and Heroism, talks about the role of female spies and agents during the Civil War. This program was made possible by the generosity of Humanities Texas, which provided underwriting for the event that allowed it to be open to the public at no charge.
