Alice, "Strength",Luce,
Lucy’s always loved the poem "The midnight ride of Paul Revere", and while doing more research she came across the legend of Sybil Ludington who is considered the female version of him. The legend goes that she either volunteered or was told by her father who lead the local militia, to ride and rally his men because the British were planning to attack the Continental Army’s supply in Danbury. It was more likely because of her father’s position she rode behind him. The British had burned down part of Danbury by the time his men arrived but they were able to push General Tryon and his men back to Long Island. Of course with all legends details vary.
