Rose Greenhow's My Imprisonment- An Annotated Edition

Emily Lapisardi

More than one hundred and fifty years after her dramatic death by drowning, Civil War spy and diplomat Rose Greenhow remains as polarizing and controversial as she was in life. This scholarly edition of her 1863 memoirs enhances her work with copious footnotes, a complete index, and an introduction placing it within the context of her years in the nation's capital, her espionage, and her semi-official diplomatic mission to Europe.

"Meticulously, and in fascinating detail, Emily Lapisardi has annotated the memoir of one of the most controversial figures of the Civil War. Rose Greenhow—Confederate spy, provocateur, consummate name-dropper and social climber—lived a brief but tumultuous life, and Lapisardi puts it into thorough and proper context. "


— Abbott Kahler, NY Times best selling author (as Karen Abbott) of LIAR TEMPTRESS SOLDIER SPY
