First published in 1865, Belle Boyd's memoir of her experiences as a Confederate spy has stood the test of time and interest. Belle first gained notoriety when she killed a Union soldier in her home in 1861. During the Federal occupations of the Shenandoah Valley, she mingled with the servicemen and, using her feminine wiles, obtained useful information for the Rebel cause. In this new edition, Kennedy-Nolle and Faust consider the domestic side of the Civil War and also assess the value of Boyd's memoir for social and literary historians in its challenge to our understanding the most divisive years in American history.

"Whatever I heard I regularly and carefully committed to paper, and whenever an opportunity offered I sent my secret despatch by a trusty messenger to General J. E. B. Stuart, or some brave officer in command of the Confederate troops." With her residence behind the lines of the Union army Belle Boyd became acquainted with many of their officers which "enabled [her] to gain much important information as to the position and designs of the enemy." From eavesdropping to acting as a courier between Generals Beauregard, Jackson and others, Boyd quickly became the eyes and ears of the Confederacy behind enemy lines. She became one of the most important Confederate spies of the civil war, ably assisting Stonewall Jackson in his offensive against Front Royal in 1862. This is her fascinating account, written in her own words, of that period where she sacrificed everything, even going to prison a number of times, to aid the cause of the South. Belle Boyd in Camp and Prison is a fascinating memoir from the American Civil War. It provides an insight into the espionage activities of ordinary citizens who were willing to go to great lengths in order to assist those who were fighting. Isabella Maria Boyd, more commonly known as Belle Boyd, died of a heart attack in 1900. Her memoir which covers the entirety of her life assisting the Confederacy as a spy, her time in Union prisons and some of her life after she had left the Civil War was first published in 1865.

Excerpt from Belle Boyd, in Camp and Prison, Vol. 1 of 2: With an Introduction At the time of my presentation to Mrs. Hare dinge, above alluded to, I found the lady in very great distress of mind and body. She was sick, without money, and driven almost to distraction by the cruel news that her husband was suffer ing the tender mercies of a Federal prison. Lieutenant Hardinge was in irons and his friends were prohibited from sending him food or Clothing! Letters addressed to his young wife, containing remittances, were intercepted; and thus found her, not quite friendless, in this great wilderness of London, but, what is worse, absolutely desti tute Of that indispensable and all-prevailing friend - money.
