What category does a woman "CSA Citizen Rebel" go?

+4 votes
Annie Miller, of Denver Colorado,  has a CSA Soldier PLAQUE next to her headstone.  I found fold3 record for her 57 pages of letters and wondered where I can place her, I did not see a REBEL Citizen category, but I probably didn't look in the right place.  Thank you Carole  ps: I am still looking for her maiden name...

Unfortunately, this is a "novelty" marker that can be purchased online. Without further sources or information, I am not sure that she could be called a CSA Rebel - she was merely on the side of the CSA as a citizen.

Also, the current category on her profile, Confederate States of America, should be removed or replaced by another category. the CSA Category is a Top Level category and should not have any profiles linked to it.

even though her fold3 documents are marked "Washington D.C. Rebel"?

Can you point me to where you see the wording "Washington D.C. Rebel"?

The only thing I can find on those records are a stamp stating that the records are part of the "Rebel Archives", handled by the "Records Division" of the "War Department".

EDIT - Disregard this last comment. The link provided in your sources takes you to the wrong person documents on fold3 - you might want to update that.

So, first we need to determine what they meant by Rebel. Considering that the CSA was a rebellion, it was common for CSA sympathizers to be called "Rebels". The stamps on the documents are also marked as "Rebel Archives", but the full name was along the lines of "Records of Confederate Executive, Legislative and Judicial Offices".

Did you also notice that there are 57 pages on fold3 for "Miller, Anna T"? It would be interesting to have some document those...

I just went to the profile sources.. and it took me to the Anna T. Miller and the 57 pages that I had seen and tried to read.  I did note that she was referring to La.  and I found a census that they were living in La. and so was the sister.  so I believe that the fold3  is correct.  and the  document I saw that had the "Washington D.C. Rebel" is copied and attached to the profile. I have asked the Confederate Daughters chapter that might have added the plaque IF indeed they did and what they have on her.  Her letters are hard to read.
These Categories are getting out of hand.   Next we will have an “immigrant Rebel”.  I can see adding a label fir a civilian who worked in a Confederate armament factory.

I agree with the previous comment that the term refers to the name of the data base file that contained her name.
Gee ... sorry to get so many upset. But doing Civil War Records you do not see that many women that aren't wives have a file.  Plz forget I mentioned her.
I think it’s very interesting about women involvement in the civil war as they had a huge role to play in the hospitals wounded etc. I just wanted to thank you for posting an intriguing question. Amazing times they lived
