The Bulloch women of Roswell, Georgia, were not typical antebellum Southern belles. Most were well educated world travelers skilled at navigating social circles far outside the insular aristocracy of the rural South. Their lives were filled with intrigue, espionage, scandal, adversity and perseverance. They eluded Union spies on land and blockaders at sea during the Civil War and afterwards influenced the national debate on equal rights for women. The influence of their Southern ideals increased exponentially when they integrated into the Roosevelt family of New York.

Drawing on primary sources, this book provides new insight into the lives of the women closely linked with the Bulloch family. They include four first ladies, a Confederate spy, the mother of President Teddy Roosevelt and a number of his closest confidants. Nancy Jackson, the family's nursemaid slave, is among the less well known but equally fascinating Bulloch women.
