Abstract:A Woman’s Revenge was developed by the fifth grade students of Martin Luther King Elementary School during the 2013 spring semester as part of the America’s Civil War through Music sessions developed by Scott Schwartz and Marten Stromberg. The students’ spy song was loosely based on the lives of two Civil War spies, Belle Boyd (1844 – 1900) who served as a Confederate spy and Sarah Emma Edmonds (1841-1898) who served as both a soldier in the 2nd Michigan Infantry and a spy for the Union Army. The third character of the song was based on the Staffordshire bull terrier, Sallie Anne Jarrett, who served as the mascot for the 11th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry until she lost her life in 1865 during the battle of Hatcher’s Run.
