Virginia ("Ginnie") Bethel Moon 1844-1926

The daughter of a Confederate sympathizer, Ginnie Moon was a noted Southern Civil War spy. Born in Ohio, Ginnie moved to Memphis with her mother in 1862. She was arrested for spying soon after the Federal Army occupied the city, but escaped to continue her work elsewhere. Ginnie returned to Memphis after the war and was a heroine of the yellow fever epidemics of the 1870s. She died in New York City.
