About the Author
George Johnson, Jr., emeritus Professor of Surgery at the Univeristy of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, grew up several blocks from where Rose O'Neale Greenhow is buried and frequently fished the wrecks of the blockade runners around the Cape Fear River. He was fortunate to run into several "unfound" treasures in the form of color pictures and maps during his research which make this book special.
Rose O'Neale Greenhow and the Blockade Runners is a pictorial tale of a Civil War heroine and the war at sea. It tells of a unique woman and the battle that sealed the fate of the South in the Civil War. Every page is illustrated with exquisite photographs or maps.
