I'd never heard of Dicey LOangston before learning of this book, which has been so lovingly written by her fourth great-great granddaughter. I won't go into her exploits here, and to be honest I'm surprised that I didn't ever hear of her in any of my old American History classes.

A great read that has me wanting to learn more about this true-life heroine.

This book was written about my husbands relative, Dicey Langston. Our children and grandchildren loved reading about who and where they came from!

Our family has been enjoying this book immensely - especially since the heroine is one of our daughter-in-law's ancestors! Even without that, it paints a good picture of life in South Carolina during the Revolutionary War - I suspect it was a very different experience than it was further north. And, it shows that there have always been tough women in the family!

This will be a family keepsake for years to come - and a good lesson for our young grandaughter and other women who will become our descendents.

Thank you Marnie, for making our Christmas 2009 special.

I was looking for a real life heroine for my daughter to read about and be inspired by. This book provided that in spades and it also taught me a thing or two about what life was like during the revolutionairy war. As an added bonus, the author is a direct descendant of the main character in the story. I highly recommend the book.

Dicey's family burial location is about 4 blocks off Tigerville Rd . A short distance from her DAR memorial. Her father could have been buried at the Langston church in Laurens,SC but not Dicey. I also found the cemetery where her daughter Sarah Bates and some of Sarah's children were buried. Very old stones. That is another interesting story in its self.
