Daughter of a Soldier, Wife of a Soldier, Daughter of the Regiment
—Served: 1861-1862 —Of the women who accompanied Civil War armies, many disguised themselves as men. Born and reared in British Army camps in Africa, where women were commonplace, Kady chose to retain her identity. She followed her husband, Robert Brownwell, into the ranks of two Rhode Island volunteer regiments, participating in daily sword and rifle drill. She carried the regimental colors in two battles, The First battle of Bull Run, Virginia, in July 1861, and the battle of New Berne, North Carolina, in March 1862. Her husband's severe wound in this latter battle ended the couple's uniformed service, and they were both discharged in December, 1862.
