Anne Bailey: Frontier Scout

by Mary Rodd Furbee




During the Revolutionary War, scouts tracked enemy movements and carried messages to troops moving through the frontier. Most scouts were men, but occasionally a woman came forward, eager to do her part in the fight for independence. Anne Bailey was one such woman. After her husband was killed in battle. Anne put on her husband's fringed leather jacket, mounted her horse, and rode into history as a legendary woman scout. Anne Bailey: Frontier Scout, the true story of this woman who risked her life in the war for American independence, will excite any young reader interested in the early history of the United States or in the role of women in the American Revolution.
