My kind of people.

“Stagecoach” Mary Fields (c. 1832-1914) was born a slave in Tennessee and following the Civil War, she moved to the pioneer community of Cascade, Montana. In 1895, when she was around 60 years old, Fields became the second woman and first African American carrier for the US Postal Service.

Life-size sculpture honoring Elizabeth Thorn, the six-month-pregnant grave digger who buried 102 bodies after the battle of Gettysburg. Most all of her belongings were also destroyed during the battle since her home, like all others, was used as a hospital. Her baby girl was born in the fall, small and weak. Elizabeth said she never regained her full health after the battle of Gettysburg and its aftermath. This lady was an unsung hero if ever there was one!
