Don't know how many of you have heard of Hannah Dustin. In 1697 her town was attacked by Indians, her husband the minister and most of her children slaughtered. She watched while they swung her 10 day old daughter into a tree because she wouldn't stop crying. Bashing her head in. They then lit her house on fire.
Well two weeks later she woke in the night and with the help of a young boy acquired a tomahawk and slaughtered all 10-12 Indians while they slept. Then took their scalps which she collected a bounty for.
I like the story because it shows what people are capable of if they need to be. It shows that women have the capacity to kill if necessary.
Be sure to read the Cotton Mather version for the full unwatered down version.
Hannah knew no one was coming to save her, she was fully aware of what they had done and what her fate would be.
Cotton Mather version.
