Old North State,

I am particularly intrested in the very woman you have noted. I am writing an article for Blue & Gray Magazine on the Holly Springs Raid and recently learned of Francis/Frank. I found an article from the Memphis Bulletin, April 1, 1863, which gives a great account of her activity up to that point. I found the articles you sited as well and a website with a little more info. Apparently she not only fought at Coldwater during the Holly Springs Raid, but also fought at Shiloh as a soldier in the 11th Illinois Infantry.
