Speaker Series: Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy by Abbott Kahler
May 12 @ 7:00 pm
New York Times Best-selling Author
Abbott illuminates one of the most fascinating yet little known aspects of the Civil War: the stories of four courageous women—a socialite, a farmgirl, an abolitionist, and a widow—who were spies. Using a wealth of primary source material and interviews with the spies’ descendants, Abbott seamlessly weaves the adventures of Belle Boyd, Emma Edmonds, Rose O’Neale Greenhow, and Elizabeth Van Lew, through the tumultuous years of the war. With a cast of real-life characters including Walt Whitman, Nathaniel Hawthorne, General Stonewall Jackson, detective Allan Pinkerton, Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln, and Emperor Napoleon III, Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy lures you into the lives of daring women – 19th century style.
