18thConnect 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. Frontierswoman Although explicit details concerning most of her life are unknown, it is widely assumed that Nancy Ann Morgan Hart was born in North Carolina, somewhere in the Yadkin River valley (although some believe that she was born in Pennsylvania), around 1735 (some say 1747).She died in 1830 in Henderson County, Kentucky, where she was buried. Hart was well connected through family ties to many prominent figures in early American history. Patriot and Spy Life after the War During the late 1790s, the Harts moved to Brunswick.
