Storyboard Text

  • One stormy night in April, Sybil and her mother were getting the little kids ready for bed as her father, Colonel Luddington who was on the patriot side, told the older kids stories of war. Suddenly, they heard loud horse steps coming near.
  • April 26, 1777
  • The horse was carrying a man who said that the Redcoats were burning Danbury, the town where the militia stored the majority of their supplies. They needed someone to ride a horse around and tell the militia to meet at Colonel Luddington house by daybreak. The man was in too bad of shape and Colonel Luddington had to stay and order the troops when they arrived.

  • Sybil decided that she would be the best fit for the job, as she was the eldest and rode the woods all the time, but her mother did not agree. After hasty conversation, Colonel Luddington said that he wished Sybil was not the only option, but they had no other choice. So after a few goodbyes, Sybil rode off and began to tell the militia to meet at Colonel Luddington's house by daybreak.
  • When Sybil returned home, she was met by a big crowd of militia and their families waiting to thank her for helping out the patriot side of the war. When she got off her horse, Star, she became so overwhelmed that she hugged her dad and started crying.
  • April 27, 1777
  • George Washington came and thanked Sybil for her heroic actions and told her that if she hadn't done what she did, the war may have gone another way. The Redcoats would have done a surprise attack on George Washington's troops and may have changed the war outcome.

  •  A while after the ride, an American spy by the name of Enoch Crosby used the Luddington house as a safehold to keep away from angry British, Americans, or even just to have someplace other than caves to sleep in.Sybil and her siblings  may have helped their father communicate with Crosby and other spies, serving as both guards and communication between them.
