Elizabeth Carraway Howland was a Confederate spy during American Civil War.

Union soldiers captured her town of New Bern, North Carolina. She made useful medicine for captured Confederate soldiers and helped Confederates smuggle food. Rebels tried and failed to retake their fortress in New Bern in February 1864.[1]
