Nancy Hart, American Revolution Heroine-- Part 8: Another Famous Hart in Kentucky

More On her:

**  Hart Graveyard on Frog Island Road, is ten miles south of Henderson, Kentucky.  We just drove through there earlier this month coming back from Panama City Beach, Florida.  Wish I'd known about her as I might just have taken a detour and looked for her grave.

**  There is also a Hart County in Kentucky, which I thought might have been named for her, but it wasn't.  It was named for Captain Nathaniel G.S. hart, a Kentucky militia officer in the War of 1812.  he was wounded at the Battle of Frenchtown and died at the Massacre of the River Raisin in 1812.

I'll write about him more in my War of 1812 blog, Not So Forgotten.
