Tonight was my first opportunity to present my newly crafted program, Betsy Johnson – Girl Patriot of Bryan Station. It tells the story of a brave little 10-year-old on the Kentucky frontier in 1782. I had the pleasure of “beta testing” the talk with my own Sons of the American Revolution chapter at our monthly meeting in Cadiz, Kentucky. The men of the Col. Stephen Trigg Chapter, their wives, and their guests seemed to enjoy it very much!
Of course, little Betsy Johnson is the “hero” of my short novel, A Bucket Full of Courage. I took the elements of her childhood stories and memorialized them in book form. I hope that we will never forget her important role in Kentucky history.
This program is available for Kentucky audiences through the Kentucky Humanities Council. Consider booking me for one of your future events, and I will tell you all about her! Click on the image below to visit the Kentucky Humanities site.
