Historical Novels seems to be my latest niche for reading!
The "Nancy Harts" were a group of women from LaGrange Georgia, who when their husbands and brothers had all left for the war, organized themselves to protect what was theirs. While many of them had never needed the skills to shoot a gun, when left to fend for themselves, they needed all the help they could get. Nancy Morgan Hart (whom this band of women were named after) was originally from Pennsylvania (not historically proven). She was a strong woman who had the skills that her contemporaries were lacking! She was adept at using what was at her disposal to feed and help the women to survive! She was a great marksperson and taught her friends to shoot. While they were not officially part of the army, they trained and trained as if they were! These women were always to be at the ready, for invasion from the North.
