Review: PETTICOAT SPIES: SIX WOMEN SPIES OF THE CIVIL WAR by Peggy Caravantes

Diary of an Eccentric reviewed Petticoat Spies:  Six Women Spies of the Civil War by Peggy Caravantes for the U.S. Civil War Reading Challenge 2011.  Here’s an excerpt:

Caravantes brings these women to life in Petticoat Spies.  The book is comprised of six chapters, giving each woman their own chapter and making it easier for readers to follow their stories.  She provides a lot of information about each woman, from their childhood before the war to how they fared after their spying careers ended.  Caravantes enables readers to really get to know these women as people and as spies.  Not every woman had a happy ending, of course.  Some did not live to see the end of the war, some were recognized and honored for their service, and some found themselves penniless.
