Summary
Winkler, a journalist, historian, and retired university public affairs executive, describes how both sides of the Civil War used women as spies. He draws from memoirs, journals, letters, newspaper articles, and other research to document the spy work of women including Harriet Tubman, Rebecca Wright, Loreta Velazquez, Rose Greenhow, Elizabeth Baker, and Nancy Hart, and how these and other women concealed information across enemy lines, provided intelligence, used disguises, created ciphers, intercepted military dispatches, carried secret messages, medicines, and supplies on the rings of hoop skirts, and provided information about the enemy's fortifications, plans, troop size, and movements.
