Nancy Hart: a true patriot
Transcript of Nancy Hart: a true patriot
I pretended to be a feeble minded man to sneak in to bases and get
information. I may have been at the battle of Kettle Creek "National Women's History Museum." Education & Resources. NWHM, n.d. Web. 15 Oct. 2012. <http://www.nwhm.org/education-resources/biography/biographies/nancy-morgan-hart/>. My most famous act involved six tories. They killed my last turkey and demanded I cook it for them. They killed Hart’s last turkey and demanded she cook it for them. She also generously shared her corn liquor, ensuring that the soldiers she intended to capture were intoxicated. While the turkey was cooking, I sent my daughter to get some water from the spring and gave her instructions to alert her father, who was working in the field, by blowing on a conch shell we had hidden for this very reason. While the tories were preoccupied with their dinner and wine, I began to sneak their guns through a hole in the wall. We had gotten two of them through but was caught in the act while trying to steal the third. I quickly drew the gun on the soldiers and threatened to shoot whichever one moved first. She kept her word and after one of the soldiers made an advance on her she shot and killed him. The rest of the soldiers were wary to make a move but decided to try to rush the woman. She shot and wounded another soldier. The soldiers realized that they were disadvantaged and surrendered. They offered to shake hands but Hart did not dare lower her gun. When my husband arrived, I still had the tories at gunpoint. Ben suggested we shoot them, but I thought that was to good for them and instead My ben and a few neighbors hung the men from a nearby tree. In 1912, six bodies were found buried near the my home and believed to have been there for over a century thus confirming the legend. Me and the soldiers. I died at age 95, in 1830, I was buried in Henderson County Kentucky where I died "Nancy Morgan Hart." Nancy Morgan Hart. N.p., n.d.
