The Order of
Confederate Rose was named in honor of Rose O'Neal Greenhow, also called "Confederate
Rose". Rose was a notable spy - Gen. P.G.T. Beauregard credited her with the
information that helped him plan the victorious battle at Manassas. She was
eventually caught and imprisoned (with her young daughter "Little Rose") in the
infamous Capitol prison in Washington, D.C. Upon her release she was sent to the
South and then sent by the C.S. govt. to Europe to try to gain aid for the South
there. On her return voyage, when trying to reach shore after the blockade
runner she was on ran aground her rowboat capsized. Rose Greenhow was drowned.
Pulled under by the gold she had sewn in her clothes for the aid of the
Confederacy. She died a true Southern martyr and hero.
On October 11, 2014, The Florida Society Order of Confederate Rose dedicated the plaque for our namesake Rose O'Neal Greenhow at the Confederate Memorial Park in Tampa. The dedication was hosted by the local Tampa Chapter Mary and Mollie Bell #20.
