I guess that this Civil War Trivia proves that women served as Spies and soldiers during the Civil War.
[B]Name the only woman to have completed a fully documented Union Army enlistment. Jennie Hodges aka Albert D. J. Cashier, 95th Infantry ILL Vols.
I guess that this proves that a women who was enlisted in the Union army and worn the uniform of a soldier, i.e. Pauline Cashman, Jennie Hodger aka Private Albert Cashier, Sara Edmond aka Private Frank Thompson, Bell Boyd aka Luitenant Harry Buford,ect.. were more than likely walking through battle lines in uniform and in both union and confederate encampments in uniform as well.[/B]
