Pauline Cushman got fired from acting because she was appearing in a road show in Union-held Louisville, KY, when two paroled confederate officers offered her $300 to toast Jefferson Davis during her performance. She did, but first she reported the incident to the federal Provost Marshal, who recognized that this expression of secessionist loyalty would give Cushman entrée' into Confederate camps and would make her valuable as a Union spy. The theater company fired her for making the toast, and she was "evicted" from the Union lines.
