This is the story of Behethland Moore, the young daughter of an Army captain, who became a Revolutionary War hero when it became necessary to convey intelligence of danger to Captain Wallace, who was in command of a small force on the other side of the Saluda. No male messenger could be procured, so Miss Moore - at the time only fifteen years old - volunteered to undertake the service. Accompanied by her little brother, and a friend named Fanny Smith, she went up the river in a canoe in the middle of the night, gave the warning to Captain Wallace, and through him to Colonel Henry Lee.
