  • 10. Rose A Confederate Spy! O’Neal Greenhow Hosting lavish parties with some of the most powerful men in Washington and sending the information to the O Confederacy–Rose Greenhow isn’t your ordinary widow. n August 23, 1861, Allan Pinkerton was seen spying in Greenhowʼs permanent residency in Washington D.C. Rose OʼNeal Greenhow was born in 1817 at Port Tobacco, Maryland. After her fatherʼs tragic death, she was sent to Washington D.C to live with her aunt who ran a stylish boarding house at the Old Cal building. In D.C she was introduced to important politicians. As a young woman, she was beautiful, educated, loyal, and compassionate. After her husbandʼs tragic death in San Francisco she came back to Washington D.C and resided at their previous residence.

Soon after returning, she received love letters from Senator Henry Wilson of Massachusetts who was the chairman of Military Affairs for the Union. By using his affection to her advantage, she was able to get information for the Southern war effort. This gave Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Jordan of Virginia great interest in her.

With her connection with Wilson, Greenhow could greatly change the effect of the war in hopes that the South would win. Greenhowʼs information about attacking days, battle strategies, etc helped the Confederacy triumph at the first Battle at Bull Run. Greenhow was later caught by Allan Pinkerton, a spy for the Union. He loved the North as she did the South. She was placed under house arrest and later transfered to the Old Capitol Prison with her daughter, “Little Rose.” She Phoebe Boosalis Tuesday, June 2,resides there until further notice. now 2009 3:57:33 PM PT
