The clever, devious, daring women who helped turn the tides of the Civil War

During America's most divisive war, both the Union and Confederacy took advantage of brave and courageous women willing to adventurously support their causes. These female spies of the Civil War participated in the world's second-oldest profession--spying--a profession perilous in the extreme. The tales of female spies are filled withsuspense, bravery, treachery, and trickery. They took enormous risks and achieved remarkable results--often in ways men could not do. These are the bold, untold stories of women shaping our very nation. Stepping out of line and into battle, these women faced clandestine missions, treason, and death, all because of their passionate commitment to their cause.

These are the unknown Civil War stories you need to hear.

As stated on the grave marker of Union spy Elizabeth Van Lew:
"She risked everything that is dear to man--friends, fortune, comfort, health, life itself."
