Please Love me, I am the richest out of the whole world.
I cannot, my father restricts me from doing so, I am so very sorry.
What did Cushman do and where did it happen?
So we're attacking them on the 10th in at noon right?
Why is Cushman important and how was she impactful to the war?
May Pauline Cushmen rest in piece.
Pauline Cushman was an actress that traveled around the country, she was offered an undercover job as a spy in the civil war she accepted it.
When she was still acting, two Confederate soldiers asked her to toast with confederate's president during a performance. She went to report them to a local union officer, but he suggested to follow along and become a Union spy. She gained their trust and she became a camp follower in Kentucky and Tennesee, she collected information from soldiers. She found General Bracton Bragg's battle plans but she was caught.
Woman spies overall provided valuable information to the Union that made huge difference in the war. Cushman was one of the most popular woman that contributed in the civil war, and she showed the woman can make major differences in war too.
