I am usually late to this game and was surprised it was ongoing. I had to dig for quite some time, but I finally found her! Charlotte Cushman was a famous actress from the 19th century.
Donna,Congratulations, you are a winner.How did you know this?PJM
Congratulations, Donna! How did you get it?
I just knew she had something to do with the Civil War and when that quest was exhausted, I got lucky at Picture History. From sonsofthesouth.net (this is your other site, right?), I followed the picturehistory.com link. Thanks for the fun!
Yes, the www.sonofthesouth.net site is mine. Still surprised you figured it out. This was a hard one.PJM
Oh, should have said I randomly picked a category and literally started looking at every photo until I saw what I thought could be her at an older age, clicked through and saw the photo you posted here. Very lucky find and can you say I have too much time on my hands today?
Ah. Good move! I had found a Pauline Cushman (actress and Union spy), but not Charlotte (no relation, that I can find)...My hats off to ya! I'll figure out how to do this someday. Good game, PJM! How about a pic of Festus?
Well done Donna, good idea goingwith actress.PJMThanks for another good contest.
PJMI didn't know www.sonofthesouth.net was your site. I've often visited there. It's a great site, so informative.
Linda,Yes, that was my first WEB site. Thanks for the kind words
