There's a book on Bowser which leaves out Van Lew, too, or minimizes their relationship and treats Van Lew as ineffective. I don't know- we girls get pitted against each frequently. Like there's no room for more than one.

Bowser had to have been incredibly intrepid- can you imagine spying in that house, of all others?

Does this little video comport with the historical facts as we know them?

Particularly about the destruction of Union spy records after the War?

That was one of worst videos I have ever seen, mostly garbage at best. Van Lew was very important to intelligence gathering in Richmond. Mary Elizabeth Bowser was also important, so both should be treated as equally important.
