The Curious Case of Albert Cashier: Lincoln’s ‘Lady’ Soldier

Thursday 2nd November @ 8pm
  • The Curious Case of Albert Cashier

Belvidere, Illinois, 1862: A young Irishman, Albert D.J. Cashier, enlists with the Union Army in the Civil War and becomes a decorated hero. But unknown to his comrades, Private Cashier is waging an internal war all of his own.

When he is fifty years a veteran an indiscreet doctor reveals to all of America that Cashier was assigned female at birth, born under the name Jennie Hodgers, from Clogherhead, Co. Louth, Ireland. 

From that day on Albert’s greatest battle truly begins: for identity, selfhood, and truth.

Presented by Quintessence Theatre.
