Nancy Hart, American Revolution Heroine-- Part 1

From Wikipedia.

I have been writing about a group of women from LaGrange, Georgia, called the Nancy harts during the Civil War who organized a military unit to defend their town while the men were away fighting.  This has been in my Saw the Elephant Civil War Blog this past week.

I'd never heard of Nancy Hart, so good old Wikipedia to the rescue.


Rebel heroine of the American Revolution, noted for her exploits against Loyalists in the northeast Georgia backwoods.  Reputedly outwitted Tory soldiers and killed some of them.
