Mary Bowser and the Civil War Spy Ring kicks off a new, interactive series where middle grade readers get to experience history in a whole new way.
This first book features Mary Bowser, an African American spy who infiltrated Confederate leadership at the highest levels. Pretending to be illiterate, Bowser evaded detection, meanwhile using her photographic memory to “copy” critical documents.
Using spycraft materials included, readers can discover and unravel clues embedded in the text and illustrations to solve the book’s ultimate mystery: where did Mary hide her secret diary?
