The Scandalous Lady Lenore

Copyright © 2008 Linda Apple
"The Scandalous Lady Lenore"
oil on canvas - 6"x 6"
Appletree Hollow Series

This is Lady Lenore Velazquez - 1856.
I decided to post this entry from the Appletree Secret Diaries, although it is a bit scandalous.
"It was noted that Lady Lenore was born of noble birth. Her father was a big plantation owner and government official in Mexico. How she came to live at Appletree Hollow is somewhat of a mystery but was hinted that she was sent there after her father was accused of being a spy. For some years, she was considered a fine young lady, giving fancy dinner parties and attending social events but as time went on her life became immersed in suspicion and inquiry. Some said that one of the first things that brought notice was, although she was pursued by some attentive bachelors, she never responded to their requests and gave them little notice. More questions arose when she would not receive guests or not be seen for long periods of time and in those days, not to marry was enough to generate a buzz. It wasn't until suddenly, a cold frosty morning in 1862, the village was notified that she would not be returning and her house was for sale."
After reading this, I had to stop everything and search through the diaries to try to find
out what could possibly have happened to Lady Lenore and this is what I found:
Evidently, she was working as a double agent for the army. This was uncovered after her death, when she was found on the battlefield at Shiloh. She had secretly fought at Manassas/BullRun, Ball’s Bluff, and Shiloh in the disguise of Lieutenant Harry L. Bennington.
