HEROES AND HEROINES OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION (Series)

SPUNKY REVOLUTIONARY WAR HEROINE

by Idella Bodie

During the Revolutionary War powerful England, with its shiny new guns and uniforms, fought the colonists who had little money, rifles, or ammunition. 

Actually, very few of the soldiers who fought in this war were from England.  The colonists who wanted freedom from their mother country fought against other colonists who wanted to remain loyal to the king of England.

Because this was true, Patriot neighbors fought against Tory neighbors.  In the Up Country of South Carolina, Tory families outnumbered the Patriots.  The family of Solomon Langston was one of the Patriot families who lived among the Tories. 

Solomon's only daughter, Laodicea, nicknamed, "Dicey," inherited her father's love of freedom.

Laodicea “Dicey” Langston paid close attention to the words and actions of her Tory neighbors. Risking her life, she traveled on foot at night (about ten miles) to deliver a message of impending attack to her brother’s Patriot camp.

44 pages. 2000.   Reading level: Ages 9-12
