Anyway, I started to lose interest towards the end of the book as it got a bit weighed down with factual information such as letters from Generals etc about the Civil War, which I am inclined to think the author added to add weight to her elaborated claims about her involvement as a spy! Regardless it is an exciting read, and a good historical account of battles during the Civil War.

Great reading about a woman who dressed as a man to fight in the civil war. Some parts are a bit hard to digest unless you are into violence. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Amy
