Baltimore-native Virginia Hall was an American spy and the most highly decorated female civilian of World War II. So why haven't more people heard of her? The truth is, Hall was dedicated to staying undercover. In this photo, head of the Office of Strategic Services, William Donovan, presents Hall with the Distinguished Service Cross in 1945. President Harry Truman offered a public ceremony at the White House, but Hall declined. Her mother was the only outsider in attendance. Watch Virginia Hall's incredible true story portrayed on stage in a historical play @marylandhistory on Saturday, October 19 at 11 a.m. Register at http://mdhs.org/events. #marylandhistory #womenshistory
