Daughters of Liberty- Sarah Fulton
Transcript of Daughters of Liberty- Sarah Fulton
Daughters of Liberty
The Daughters of Liberty was a group of women who were patriots during the late 1700s and showed their loyalness by participating in the boycotts of British goods, openly argued against the taxes that the British put on the colonies, and played a major part in the war as well. This Group was established in 1769. Some of the women who were in this group were Abigail Addams, Margaret Kemble Gage, Abigail Wright, Hannah Barron, Lydia Mulliken, Mary Flint Hartwell, Phoebe Bliss Emerson, Sybil Ludington, Phoebe Fraunces, Esther Reed, and Sarah Bradlee Fulton.
Sarah Bradlee was born on December 24, 1740 in Dorchester, Massachusetts. As a child her parents always said that she was very brave and daring. Sarah had one younger brother named Nathaniel. On July 25, 1762 Sarah married John Fulton and together they moved to Medford, Massachusetts. When Sarah moved she made sure to frequently visit her brother Nathaniel. Together Sarah and John had six children. Sarah Lloyd Fulton, Lydia Fulton, Frances Burns Fulton, Samuel Bradley Fulton, Ann Wier Fulton, and Mary Fulton.
Contributions to the Revolution
Known a the "Mother of the Boston Tea Party" she created the idea of making the men look like Mohawk Indians. She painted the men faces and provided them with the Indian like clothing. She then waited for the men to come back to her house so that she could remove the red paint from their faces, so that their identities would be unknown. In 1775, Sarah voluntarily rallied women to nurse and tend to wounded soldiers and cared for wounded men at the Battle of Bunker Hill. One man had a bullet in his check, and Sarah gracefully removed the it. Then in March of 1776 Major John Brooks of Medford needed an urgent message to be delivered to General George Washington he came to the Fulton family for help and Sarah volunteered to deliver the message alone through the enemy lines of Charleston, and completed the task successfully and returned home. Sarah was also if not the first than one of the best women spies during the revolution.
