This is Sybil Ludington. Today is her birthday.Sybil is not very well known and it’s a crying shame. The 16-year old was personally thanked by George Washington for her heroic feat, riding twice the distance of Paul Revere and warning the militia and rebellion sympathizers of the sacking of Danbury, CT. But thanks to Longfellow’s severely historically inaccurate poem, more people remember Revere’s ride than hers. *sighs* By the way? Revere got captured by the British after his stint and had a ton of other riders out on the roads with him or to switch off with. Sybil Ludington was by herself, in the rain, and she beat highwaymen trying to stop her doing her duty WITH A STICK, still managing to get the job done and home safe.Thanks, Syb. You should make everyone happy inside with your pure badassery.


Who is this lovely lady that my history class has never even mentioned?! Augh! (Although a little googling indicates that her birthday is the 16th, not the 6th.)
