Description

Nancy Hart (ca. 1735-1830) Georgia's most acclaimed female participant during the Revolutionary War (1775-83) was Nancy Hart. A devout patriot, Hart gained notoriety during the revolution for her determined efforts to rid the area of Tories, English soldiers, and British sympathizers. Her single-handed efforts against Tories and Indians in the Broad River frontier, as well as her covert activities as a patriot spy, have become the stuff of myth, legend, and local folklore. The Daughters of the American Revolution erected a small park marking the approximate site of Hart's frontier cabin along River Road in Elbert County. During the Great Depression of the 1930s, Civilian Conservation Corps workers constructed a replica cabin on the site, using chimney stones from the original cabin, which had stood on the crest of a large hill overlooking Wahatche Creek.
