Florena Budwin
Birth: unknown
Death: Jan. 25, 1865
Florence
Florence County
South Carolina, USA

Florena Budwin (probably an alias) enlisted in Federal service in the Civil War, was captured, and died a POW at the Florence Stockade, a prison camp which operated outside Florence, SC from September 15, 1864, to the waning days of February, 1865. Her identity as a female was only discovered by the prison authorities shortly before her death. She was buried in a marked grave among the trench burials that claimed the bodies of approximately 2,300 men. For many decades she would be the only female soldier buried in a national cemetery. (bio by: Albert Ledoux)
