Sybil Ludington: Revolutionary War Rider (Based on a True Story)

Written by E. F. Abbott

In 1777, living in what is now New York, Sybil Ludington, her colonel father, and her family are Patriots, fighting against the British in the Revolutionary War. The British, however, are not the only enemy the Ludingtons' every acquaintance, every neighbor, has the potential to be loyal to the British crown. When British troops raid Danbury, Connecticut, it is up to Sybil to get the word to her father's men. Only two years after Paul Revere's fateful ride, Sybil leaps atop her horse and rides the whole night through, avoiding near brushes with danger and successfully warning the Regiment.
