Does anyone have any information about women spying in the Civil War? I am looking for primary documentation, if possible, but any resources would help! Thank you so much in advance!
I've seen this recent volume from author Karen Abbott on store bookshelves and been tempted to purchase:
Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy: Four Women Undercover in the Civil War Hardcover – September 2, 2014
One example comes from a Union veteran named Remington who claimed that his espionage explains the mysterious Confederate failures at Spring Hill, Tennessee.I'm guessing there were some tall tales post war. That's always a little surprising to me though because the genuine stories just needed no embellishment.
