Sharyn McCrumb, Ghost Riders

Special | 25m 13s

In 1861 the Civil War reached the mountainous South-where the enemy was your neighbor, the victims were your friends, & the wrong army was whichever one you joined. When Malinda Blalock's husband, Keith, joined the army, she dressed as a boy & went with him. They spent the war close to home in the North Carolina mountains, acting as Union guerrilla fighters, raiding Confederate sympathizers farms.
