Most Unique / by Dave Hileman

This monument at Moore's Creek National Monument near Wilmington, NC is unusual. It is to honor the women who attended to the soldiers after the battle. One woman is mentioned on the statue and she are her husband are buried here, but it is for all those who tended to the wounded at volunteers to serve. This lady, here called Polly, was but 16 at the time of the battle. It is, according to the ranger, likely they got her first name incorrect. But it may have been a nickname.
