Her early years are a mystery with few verifiable details. Her real name was Harriet Wood. In the early 1850s she embraced the life of a theatrical performer as a member of Thomas Placide's Varieties. It was then that she took the name Pauline Cushman. She was sent south of Nashville to visit General Bragg's headquarters.
Note: The time of her Civil War fame was recalled at her funeral, which was arranged by members of the Grand Army of the Republic.
