Making Change: Immigrant Activism Series Albert Cashier: A Life Apart Author & Historian DeAnne Blanton
Albert Cashier was born Jennie Hodges in County Louth in Ireland. Cashier became famous as one of a number of women soldiers who served as men during the Civil War. Cashier adopted the identity of a man before enlisting and maintained it until death, so the consistent and long-term (at least 53 years) commitment to a male identity has prompted some contemporary scholars to suggest that Cashier was a trans man.
