Women's History Month.
Want to talk about Women in history? Lets talk about the ones that really made a difference. Not the ones that couldn't hold a candle to the strong mothers of our nation.
Born a slave in Tennessee in 1832, this tall, powerfully built woman was ambitious, daring and liked a good fight. With no formal education, she forged her way to Ohio and on to the Montana Territory. Declaring herself the protector of the Ursuline nuns at St. Peter's Catholic Mission near Cascade,Montana, Mary defended those she loved from predators on two legs as well as four. She delivered the mail by stagecoach, never missing a day until she was almost 80 years old. She died in Cascade in 1914.
