Emeline's Story

I wrote a story recently about Emeline Jamison Pigott, a distant relative who was a Confederate Spy.

I've since come across several old newspaper accounts of her arrest and thought I would share. This first one is from the Old North State newspaper which was published in Salisbury, NC and is dated February 18, 1865. The headline is "Beaufort Waiflets." Do you know what that means?


This second article, "A Blockade Runner in Petticoats" was in the Boston Herald, dated February 24, 1865.
