Heroines of the Past

Brave women of our early American wars...1812, Revolutionary, and Civil wars. This includes spies, nurses, doctors, and women who disguised their gender and fought beside the men. Unfortunately many women died without their genders ever being discovered. This cemetery is for the ones that I've found.
