March is National Women’s History Month and this year’s theme is the celebration of women of character, courage, and commitment. Listen to a story of one such woman, Mary Bowser, who was a spy for the Union
. That is brave enough, but knowing that she had been a slave, and was working as a spy in the Confederate White House shows her commitment to the Union cause. She was part of a larger spy ring in the South which gathered information and passed messages to the Union. This report from NPR is both educational and fascinating.
