“Again, in this crisis of terrible travail, Ann Hupp proved equal to the emergency. Encouraging the trembling Ault and the weeping women with the consoling language of hope – nerving her arm and steeling her heart to the severe duties of the moment, she, with true Spartanism, snatching up a rifle fired at the approaching savages, and then Ďran from porthole to porthole,í protruding its muzzle in different directions—to convey the idea of great forces in the house” (Submitted on July 18, 2008.)
