Rose Greenhow audio book

This audio DVD, produced by the O’Neal Genealogy Association, features Emily Lapisardi reading Confederate spy Rose Greenhow’s memoir My Imprisonment and the First Year of Abolition Rule at Washington. Emily’s voice control, resonance, timbre, syntax and style will transport the listener back to 1864.   As a bonus, Emily also reads a letter from Mrs. Greenhow to her youngest daughter.  This letter was discovered on her person after she drowned while attempting to run the blockade. 

“I just finished listening to the voice of Rose O’Neal Greenhow by Emily
Lapisardi as she reads “My Imprisonment and the First Year of Abolition
Rule at Washington”. Emily transports you back in time as she reveals an
accurate history of the times, giving you haunting details of the Yankee
government’s blatant and complete disregard for decorum or the humane
treatment of our heroine and her little daughter of 8 years. Rose describes
in vivid detail all the horrors of her imprisonment. Her vast knowledge of
the inner workings of Washington along with its main cast of characters is
remarkable and fascinating. I do not think we will ever truly understand
the enormous sacrifice Rose gave so freely to the Southern Confederacy.
 I can say without reservation this CD should be
heard by every compatriot of the South.”
