Among the outrageous women you'll meet are: Belle Boyd-a spy for the confederacy who dodged a hail of bullets to deliver key information to General Stonewall Jackson Susan B. Anthony-the pioneering women's rights crusader who broke the law in order to vote for Ulysses S. Grant for president Clara Barton-who cared for Civil War soldiers on the battlefield and founded the American Red Cross Harriet Tubman-the runaway slave who led hundreds to freedom on the Underground Railroad
