Cathay Williams (1842-1893) worked as an Army cook and a washerwoman during the Civil War. Despite women being prohibited from serving in the military, Williams enlisted for three years in the U.S. Regular Army under the name of "William Cathay" and pretended to be a man. Because of frequent hospitalization, it was discovered that she was a woman and so she was honorably discharged by her commanding officer. After that, Williams joined a regiment that would soon be known as the Buffalo Soldiers. Her story was published in the St. Louis Daily Times.
