Rod Beemer Speaking at The Civil War Roundtable Of Eastern Kansas
A Woman Soldier and an Artist at Cedar Creek
The lives of a female Civil War soldier and a Civil War artist-correspondent converge at the Battle of Cedar Creek on October 19, 1864. It’s a compelling story that suggests this female soldier was a recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor for her actions at Cedar Creek.
Ongoing research is uncovering many questions, but also uncovering compelling evidence that her story may be true.
