Woohoo! Anyone who murders women and children should be immortalized!in the early 1600s in a new settlement in America, Hannah Dustin's husband escaped with 8 of their 9 children when Indians attacked their village. Many people were killed. Hannah and her newborn and other women and children were marched out of the village. Hannah's 6day old infant was murdered in front of her. The Indians swung her baby against a tree until its head was smashed.
When their guards slept one night, Hannah got his hatchet and killed him, while another captive killed the other guard. Then she and the others got into canoes and went down the river toward a bigger settlemetn... then hannah turned them around and went back to where their captors were slain. She killed their women and children while they slept.
When she got back to the settlement, she was able to sell the scalps she'd taken.
A statue of Hannah Dustin was erected later, and it's believed to be the first statue of a woman erected in this country.
Ann and Nancy Wilson are her direct descendants.
I'm enjoying their autobiography.
Who the hell are Ann and Nancy Wilson?
