Synopsis: From 1861 through 1865, southern women fought a war within a war. While most of their efforts involved activities such as rolling bandages and organizing charity fairs, many women in the Confederacy, particularly in border states, challenged Federal authority in more direct ways: smuggling maps, medicine, and munitions; aiding deserters; spying; feeding Confederate bushwhackers; cutting Federal telegraph wires. Thomas P. Lowry's investigation into some 75,000 Federal courts-martial - uncovered in National Archives files and mostly unexamined since the Civil War - brings to light women caught up in the inexorable Unionist judicial machinery. Their stories, published here for the first time, often in first-person testimony, compose a picture of courage and resourcefulness in the face of social, military, and legal constraints.
From the Author: I had to admire the pluck and derring-do of these Flowers of the South, even when over-done, as in the case of Mrs. Robert E. Lee, who came to the defense of a Ranger who had killed a clerk while robbing a convenience store. The notion of sensitive ladies fainting away was abolished in these military trials of civilian women.
