Nancy Hart

If you were a British soldier stationed in Georgia, you knew about Nancy Hart. Nancy didn't just talk; she took action. When British soldiers came to question her about helping out a Patriot soldier, she brazenly admitted to it. Forced to cook the British a meal, she killed two of them. No, not with her cooking, with their own muskets.

Once, when information about British plans were needed, Nancy disguised herself as a crazy man. She went about the British camp gathering vital information for the Patriot cause.

Nancy is honored in Georgia with a county named after her and her portrait is in the state capital. If you visit Georgia, rest a spell at War Woman Creek. It's named for her.
