As I begin to read Lydia’s story, I recall the days that led up to the named storm, Hurricane Katrina. It was the year 2005. Most of the people I came in contact with were tracking the storm and wondered if the storm would come our way. We spoke of how we would prepare for the storm. I was afraid because my husband was on the road and I was alone to take care of my five-year-old child and my home. Lydia was brave as she rode out the storm.

Lydia Darragh was a brave Quaker Housewife living on Second Street when the British occupied Philadelphia on September 26th, 1777. Many major wars were taking place, and they were known as the American Revolution when referred to as one. She supported the war effort and was read out of her meetings because of that support. There is no concrete proof of Darragh’s stories, but a family member brought her memorable actions to life. That member was Darragh’s daughter, Ann, who recounted the story years after it played out. Since Ann’s testimonies have some information that does not fit with other accounts, some historians have dismissed it as a fake tale. The British made Darragh move out of her house so that they could use that area. Lydia wanted to stay because she had two children to take care of. She decided to ask Lord Howe for permission to remain where she was. On her way, she met up with a British officer who surprisingly turned out to be a second cousin, Captain Barrington, from Ireland. Due to Barrington, Darragh was allowed to stay in her home while keeping a room available for British officers to hold meetings. Lydia Darragh carried out many courageous actions to support the Americans in the war.

Your thoughts on the book caused me to think about how I answered the questions. I don’t know if I am right or wrong. However, I know that there is never a right or wrong answer in relations to this type of discussion. It is all about what we interpreted from the reading ourselves and share with others.

After reading the diary entries of Mrs. Chestnut, I have been able to gain a little bit of insight into her life. Overall, the Chestnuts appear to be a fairly affluent family. Although it is not made clear whether Mrs. Chestnut herself comes from a family of wealth, I believe that she has been able to rise in her social standing after marrying Mr. Chestnut. To begin, Mrs. Chestnut appears to hold a number of dinner parties with family friends. As she names the people she comes in contact with, some of their occupations are mentioned. The people she associates herself with seem to be of the same class. In her diary entry on April 13th, Mrs. Chestnut is having tea with a friend, and talks about the presence of her “negro servants.” The fact that
