The transformation of society will be one of the greatest ever, redefining how we think about our cities, our homes, and our daily lives. Adults will have more time, children will have more freedom, and everyone will be able to accomplish more while letting the robots handle the chore of maneuvering the cars.

Also Known As Albert D.J. Cashier is an account of the life of an Irish immigrant girl, Jennie Hodgers, who came to the United States in the years following the Great Potato Famine. She served for three years in the 95th Illinois Infantry of the Union army under the name Albert Cashier and fought in the battles of Nashville, Mobile, and Vicksburg. Never again would she respond to the name Jennie. No one ever guessed that she was really a woman, and accounts by her fellow comrades indicate that they just assumed Albert was a small, somewhat shy man. In the years following the Civil War, “Albert” took on the life of a bachelor and worked a number of jobs from janitor to handyman. The secret was not discovered until the early 1900s, when an automobile accident broke her leg and she needed medical attention.
Based on historical records, Also Known As Albert D.J. Cashier is a fascinating story of a most amazing woman. About the Author: Lon P. Dawson is the author of Now Listen Up: An Anthology of Service Memories; A Promise Kept: The Story of the Illinois Veterans Home; the soon-to-be-published military cookbook Culinary Campaign and the autobiography Cradle Cruise: A Navy Bluejacket Remembers Life Aboard the USS Trever During World War II.
