Banished

Dallas Herald (Texas), November 8, 1862

We learn from a friend whom we know to be a reliable gentleman, that Miss Lizzie Shackleford, of Springfield, Mo., has been banished from the State, or refusing to take an oath of allegiance to Lincoln’s Government. This is the young lady whose patriotism and heroic bravery saved the lives of Capts. Alf. Johnson and Mabry, of Texas, at Springfield, last fall. She is an esteemed friend and acquaintance of ours, and we know that every pulse of her noble heart beats but for the success of our holy cause. May she live to enjoy the full fruition of the glorious liberty she has made such sacrifices to assist in winning.
