The Clothesline Code: The Story of Civil War Spies Lucy Ann and Dabney by Janet Halfmann

Children and Young Adult

Lucy Ann and Dabney Walker risked everything to escape slavery themselves, and they were determined to help defeat slavery for everyone. Together, they created a secret code disguised as laundry on a clothesline. Their plan was incredibly dangerous: it required Lucy Ann to sneak into Confederate territory to steal military secrets, while Dabney took the vital information she gathered to the Union army. This true story of sacrifice and bravery shows us that when we have courage and compassion for the world around us, even the simplest items can become powerful tools for change.
