In celebration of Women’s History Month, the Fayette-Starr’s Mill Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution placed a display in the Children's department of the Peachtree City Library. The display, “Heroines of the American Revolution”, spotlighted some lesser known women who contributed to the Revolution. Among those featured were Margaret Corbin, known as “the first American woman to take a soldier’s part in the War for Liberty” and Sybil Ludington who has been called the “Female Paul Revere.” There is also information about Nancy Hart who is the only woman to have a county in Georgia named after her.
