Rose O’Neal Greenhow was a celebrated Civil War spy who used her high social position in Washington to spy for the Confederate cause. She was eventually discovered and arrested by Allan Pinkerton, head of the recently formed Secret Service. After her release in 1862, Greenhow traveled to Europe on a diplomatic mission for the Confederacy. While in London, she wrote this memoir detailing her imprisonment in Washington’s Old Capitol Prison. She later drowned off the coast of North Carolina as her vessel was pursued by a Union picket ship.
