From the pages of American history comes The Roswell Women As they watched a nation being torn asunder, the women of Roswell, Georgia could hardly stand idle. Left without their men, they ran the Roswell mill to provide a flagging Confederate Army with proud gray uniforms. But their defiance branded them as traitors to the North and they were mercilessly shipped northward in an act decried as brutal by both North and South alike. Allison Forsyth-beautiful young widow of Captain Coin Forsyth, the regal plantation mistress would survive the ravages of imprisonment to find a new love-until a ghost from the past threatened her hard-won freedom. Madrigal O'Laney-the fiery redhead lured men from both sides of the war with a promise of love. But the promise had a price and one man thought it was too steep to pay. Rebecca Smiley-Both friend and servant, she had groomed her mistress, Allison, for the life of an aristocrat. Despite the war, she would see to it that she regained her rightful place. Flood Tompkins-Disguised as a man, she would survive the war to stake her claim to a fortune, and make a choice that could change Allison's life forever.

In July 1864, Union General William T. Sherman ordered the arrest and deportation of more than 400 women and children from the villages of Roswell and New Manchester, Georgia. Branded as traitors for their work in the cotton mills that supplied much needed material to the Confederacy, these civilians were shipped to cities in the North (already crowded with refugees) and left to fend for themselves. This work details the little known story of the hardships these women and children endured before and--most especially--after they were forcibly taken from their homes. Beginning with the founding of Roswell, it examines the pre-Civil War circumstances that created this class of women. The main focus is on what befell the women at the hands of Sherman's army and what they faced once they reached such states as Illinois and Indiana. An appendix details the roll of political prisoners from Sweetwater (New Manchester).
