7 Legendary Women to Remember ...

We all have heroes we like to remember and uplift, don’t we? My number one hero is my daddy, who proudly defended my country and fought for the freedom I enjoy today. There are others in history that I admired and wanted to share them with everyone.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

Remembered as the "Angel of the battlefield" and founder of the American Red Cross. I wrote a book report on this legendary lady in the 5th grade. I have loved her ever since! She was a smart, clever, and bold lady with a heart of compassion.

Her husband was hired to be an interpreter when Lewis and Clark learned that Sacagawea spoke the Shoshone language. Sacagawea, called Janey by William Clark, proved to be much more of help than just an interpreter.


Annie Oakley Mozee

Annie O. Mozee became known as Annie Oakley only after it became her stage name. Annie's superb marksmanship began with her shooting game to provide for her widowed mother and siblings at the young age of nine. She won many awards and starred in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show, being named "Little Sure Shot" by Chief Sitting Bull.


Florence Nightingale

Florence Nightingale became known amongst the wounded soldiers of the Crimean War as the "Lady with the lamp" and "The nightingale in the east" Nightingale made great advances in hospital systems as we know them today.


Margaret Mitchell

Margaret Mitchell is the author of one of the most famous books and film works ever made, Gone With The Wind. She won the Pulitzer Prize for it in 1937, and more than 30 million copies have been sold. Sadly, Gone With The Wind would be the only work that she would publish, since she died in an automobile crash at the age of 48.

Another female author made famous by her work, Little Women. Alcott also wrote Flower Fables, stories originally written for Ellen Emerson, the daughter of well-known author Ralph Waldo Emerson. She was passionate about her work and published many books before she died from mercury poisoning in 1888, caused by her nursing work in the Civil War.


Mary Elizabeth Bowser

Mary became one of the union spies in the Confederate White house! Having been freed years earlier, Mary was given the opportunity to attend school. When the war began, she was approached about becoming a spy for the Union army. Mary was able to obtain employment at the Confederate White House and was able to hear and read much information. Because of slavery at the time, it was assumed that she could not read or write, so nobody suspected her at all.

Who is it that you admire? Who do you want your children to remember, talk about, and look up to? Why not leave a note for us? I would love to hear from you!
