The Woman Warrior – Bearing the burden of a Revolution

At the onset of the Revolutionary War, many backwoods settlements were left unprotected as militias were formed and men marched to battle. In many communities the women not only became providers, but warriors, who found themselves defending hearth and home against British loyalist and Shawnee and Cherokee raiders. Like their male counterparts, when called upon, engaged the enemy and protected their families. Journey to Martin's Station and take up arms with the women of Powell's Valley. Program presentations Saturday at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., Sunday 11 a.m.
