Wonderful letter from Harriet Snodgrass, June 23, 1863
Harriet writes a juicy letter from Mobile, Alabama, after she has been, along with other women, banished south from St. Louis for being pro-Confederate. She describes how she evaded federal questions about her flag, and she tells Col. John Q. Burbridge where some of the ladies have ended up. See http://www.civilwarstlouis.com/articles/gratiot/listwomen.aspx for a list of women prisoners at Gratiot Street Prison in St. Louis.
