Reynolds' regiment, the 17th Illinois Volunteers, serving as a nurse and morale builder throughout the winter of 1861-1862 in Missouri. Due to her exploits in helping the wounded soldiers at the battle of Shiloh, April 6-7, 1862, Belle was commissioned as a major by the governor of Illinois. She then entered Vicksburg with the 17th IL and remained with her regiment until it was mustered out in 1864.

She was also involved with progressive movements at the turn of the twentieth century. No Back mark.
