William Truesdail (search for this): chapter 1.13
eatre was a short one; for, on her return from rehearsal one day, she found a summons from Colonel Truesdail, the chief of the army police of Nashville. On entering his office, she was received by h! At these words she involuntarily shrank back, but yet she answered in a firm tone: Colonel Truesdail, hundreds, aye, thousands of our noble soldiers, each one of greater service to our countrning. He informed her that her trunks which she had left at Nashville, had been seized by Colonel Truesdail, whereupon she made a great show of pretended indignation, declaring that she would go to sent, answered Pauline, proudly. By whom, may I ask, Miss Cushman? By the Federal Colonel, Truesdail. And why were you sent? inquired Bragg, with a sly look of incredulity. Because I gave, and went to Nashville, where I got a fresh engagement, only to be sent away in turn; for Colonel Truesdail, the chief of the Federal army police, getting wind of my Southern sentiments, and hearing

She was, at that time, playing at Mozart Hall, or Wood's theatre, in Louisville, Ky., then the headquarters of the rebel sympathizers of the southwest; and, although under Union a most virulent secessionist. Before she had left the theatre, the guards arrived to arrest her; but-out of respect to Mr. Wood, the proprietor of the theatre — they were deterred from actually executing their errand, and it was arranged that she new theatre of Nashville, Tenn., arrived at Louisville, engaged in looking up a good company of actors, and meeting with Mr. Wood of the Louisville theatre, was recommended to secure Miss Cushman.

So the proposition was made to Pauline, and, after advising with the military authorities, under whose guidance she wa

After the recent advance of our army upon Bragg at Tullahoma, and his retreat, the Pioneer Brigade pushed on to Elk river to repair a bridge. While one of its men, a private, was bathing in the river, five of Bragg's soldiers, guns in hand, came to the bank and took aim at the swimmer, one of them shouting: Come in here, you — Yank, out of the wet! The Federal was quite sure that he was done for, and at once obeyed the order. After dressing himself, he was thus accosted: You surrender, our prisoner, do you? Yes; of course I do. That's kind. Now we'll surrender to you! And the five stacked arms before him, their spokesman adding- We've done with 'em, and have said to old Bragg, good-by! Secesh is played out. Now you surround us and take us into your camp. This was done accordingly, and is but one

It now became evident to the rebs that each party had mistaken the other for Yanks ; but for further precaution, Pauline was ordered to accompany them, and the wounded soldier was placed on a horse, and the party took up their march to Wartrace. This was a programme not at all agreeable to her, and as they rode along through tce of four of the rebel scouts from whom she had escaped the night before, and who had tracked her all the way from Hillsboro. Although she pretended to be glad to see them and explained her separation from them as the result of her fears of the Yanks, they were neither gulled nor mollified, but gruffly ordered her to accompany them back, without even taking the breakfast which her kind hostess pressed upon them.
