Women played an important role in the Civil War, as many attended to wounded soldiers and organized charity events to aid in the war effort. Yet a few females who sided with the South acted less like Clara Barton than Bonnie Parker. Author Thomas P. Lowry uncovers the story of 120 Confederate women convicted by the United States government of everything from spying to armed robbery.
