Summary
One of the most famous Union spies during the Civil War, Pauline Cushman's exploits over the course of a few weeks in Kentucky and Tennessee secured her place in the annals of the war, yet the traditional stories are often based on myth rather than fact. This sweeping biography follows her service as a spy, detailing how she gained renown as Miss Major Pauline Cushman and embarked on a tempestuous life that took her from P. T. Barnum's New York stage to the Wild West of Arizona and California
