Pauline Cushman-Blake Deborah
Pauline Cushman was offered $300 to give a toast, on stage, for the Union, which she refused to do. When confederate solders had captured her, they planned to hang her right on the spot. Luckily she got away when the Union came to save her. The Union had left her out of the service when she became famous around the US when that event happened.. That's why she refused to do the toast.
