William C. Davis’ “Monstrous Regiment of Women”

Posted in Memory by Andy Hall on January 12, 2013

Jack Davis’ presentation from Saturday morning, “The Monstrous Regiment of Women: Female Soldiers in the Civil War,” is available for viewing here. One of the soldiers he discusses is Private Albert D. Cashier, Co. G, 95th Illinois Infantry, previously covered here. Good stuff.

This program was made possible by the generosity of the American National Insurance Company of Galveston, which provided an outstanding venue for the talk, and Humanities Texas, which provided underwriting for the event that allowed it to be open to the public at no charge.

    I have been to Albert Cashiers grave…if I remember right it includes both “his” name and “her” name. I will see if I can scare up the images.
