We all know the story of the midnight ride of Paul Revere, but did you know the story of Sybil Ludington? She was a 16 year-old girl who rode 40 miles in the dark through the countryside to call the men in her father's regiment back to fight the British. We celebrate the story of Sybil and all women throughout our history who helped shape our nation. 

 Eleanor Roosevelt and Amelia Earhart
