  45. 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.

  46. Donna,
    Congratulations, you are a winner.

    How did you know this?
    PJM

    ReplyDelete
  47. Congratulations, Donna! How did you get it?

    ReplyDelete
  48. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Yes, the www.sonofthesouth.net site is mine. Still surprised you figured it out. This was a hard one.
    PJM

    ReplyDelete
  50. 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?

    ReplyDelete
  51. 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?

    ReplyDelete
  52. Well done Donna, good idea going
    with actress.
