Freedwoman, spy Mary Elizabeth Bowser VS. Confederate Spies ~ Sunday at 8pm 

Author Francis Hamit to be interviewed on The Gist of Freedom, June 3rd, by Michael Coard, attorney activist.

Francis Hamit, author of the Civil War spy thrillers, "The Queen of Washington" and "The Shenandoah Spy" and Michael Coard, will discuss the roles of women spies, including Mary Elizabeth Bowser, the freedwoman who posed as a slave and stole the Confederates' war plans.

Francis Hamit, author of the Civil War spy thrillers, "The Queen of Washington" (ISBN 9781595951717) and "The Shenandoah Spy" (ISBN 9781595959027).

Mr. Hamit's books are about the Confederate Secret Service and the women who were its most effective agents. He has written about Belle Boyd and Rose Greenhow. The books are part of a larger fact based narrative that is a fictional treatment of the Confederate Secret Service. It is an attempt to reframe the accepted myths that have grown up around that conflict.
