Belle Boyd in Camp and Prison
First published in 1865, Belle Boyd's memoir of her experiences as a Confederate spy has stood the test of time. Belle first gained notoriety when she killed a Union soldier in her home in 1861. During the Federal occupations of the Shenandoah Valley, she mingled with the servicemen and, using her feminine wiles, obtained useful information for the Rebel cause. In this new edition, Sharon Kennedy-Nolle and Drew Gilpin Faust consider the domestic side of the Civil War and assess the value of Boyd's memoir for social and literary historians.
