Woman in Blue: Civil War Soldier Albert D.J. Cashier
Tuesday, May 16th at 6 pm at the El Paso Library
(Suitable Age: junior high or older)
During the Civil War, Pvt. Cashier spent three years on the march through the South with the 95th Illinois Volunteer Infantry Regiment, all the while participating in some of the bloodiest campaigns of the Western Theater. Though a true tale of war and woe, this remarkable story becomes even more remarkable when one learns that Cashier was actually a woman named Jennie Hodgers!
