Nancy Hart, American Revolution Heroine-- Part 6: Georgia. Historical Marker



1 1/2 mile.

"On Wahatche (WarWoman) Creek, in Revolutionary times lived Nancy Morgan Hart, her husband,  Benjamin, and their children.  Six feet tall, masculine in strength and courage, Nancy Hart was a staunch patriot, a deadly shot, a skilled doctor, and good neighbor.

"A spy for the colonists, she is credited with capturing several Tories.  Later, her son, John, and her family, she joined a wagon train to Henderson County, Kentucky, where she is buried.

"Hart County, the Nancy Hart Highway, and schools in Elbert and Hart Counties are named for her.  A replica of her log home, with chimney stones from the original, is in Nancy Hart Park, 1 1/2 miles from here."
