Anna "Annie" Blair Etheridge
Born: May 3 1844 - Detroit, Michigan
Died: January 23 1913 - Georgetown, Virginia
She formed camps and nursed wounded soldiers. They say that she wore a long sidesaddle skirt, and had two guns on the side of her belt. Annie also felt that she could give or show the men courage in battle. At the end of her three-year duty, she still wanted to do more. Mrs. Etheridge enlisted the veterans of the fifth Michigan and served until the war ended.
Note: Annie had received no pay for her four years of service to the Union Army during the Civil War.
