Little factoid that blew my mind.
CROMPTON, Lizzie - note FEMALE
Year of birth ~ 1848
Listed her home as London, Canada West , impersonated a man, fought in several battles with up to SEVEN different units (including 11th Kentucky Calvary), wounded twice.
I came across this entry in a long list of people burried in London that had served in the U.S. Civil War. Apparently, there were around 60,000 Canadians who left Canada to fight.
But wow. I almost weep for the story untold here.
