Person-of-Mystery



Welcome to the Person-of-Mystery Contest!  You've found the home of everyone's favorite weekend pastime, where a stylized photo of a somewhat famous person from history is provided for you to identify.


So, who could I be?  That's the mystery!  Go ahead and take a guess and then go enjoy your day.  Check back tomorrow and I'll reveal the answer.  The first correct post will be declared the winner.

For bonus points, see if you can determine her connection to the Boer War.

If you'd like to make sure that your guess is correct, enter her name into Google Images and the this photo will be found on the first page of image results.
