Women of the War


Antonia Ford

Born: July 23 1838 - Fairfax Court House, Virginia

Died: February 14 1871 - Washington, D.C

   Federal soldiers moved in to the Ford home and used it much as their Confederate counterparts had done. The presence of Federal officers under her roof did nothing to diminish Antonia's enthusiasm for the Southern cause. She listened carefully to all that was said and watched all that was done and reported as much as she could to JEB Stuart, whose troops operated in the area of Fairfax Court House.

Note: Many were convinced that her untimely death was a direct result of her confinement in the Old Capitol Prison.
