“A Pale Green Mermaid Blog”


Good Afternoon, for the gals in uniform- check out this civil war uniform,

She was basically an unpaid cook, nurse and fighter i.e. “Vivandiere” ( the french version a person who accompanied the troops helping where needed)

An unidentified American woman during the American Civil War, presumed to be a Vivandière. FROM WIKIPEDIA


If anyone has a challenge  foto to Ms. “Vivandiere “please send!


See you next Saturday, Iraq Veterans Against The War Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America Veterans for Peace


 This Slam will continue until all our soldiers return from Iraq and Afghanistan.
