FC: Lydia Darragh and Her Life | By: Jordan
1: Lydia Darragh was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1728. She admired General Washington. She Married William Darragh, a family friend, and had 9 kids- four of which died at infancy. Lydia worked as a midwife. She was schooled at Philadelphia.
2: Lydia strongly disliked Great Britain even though she wasn't even from Britain. She couldn't even move about the house without a soldier getting mad. As the soldiers were guarding the rooms, they planned for their attack on the colonists- which Lydia heard and remembered. The next day, Lydia delivered the news to her hero, General Washington. She just hated that Great Britain wanted the colonists to pay silly taxes.
3: Lydia Darragh held a big place in the war. Lydia's place in the war was a spy. She was the spy since the beginning of the war. Before the war, Lydia was a great sneaker. She once asked the soldiers if she could go get flour. Lydia then told General Washington the British plan. She had a friend, too. She was Betsy Ross.
4: Lydia Darragh has had many lifestyles and habits. Besides spying, she was also a caretaker of her children. She was also a risk taker. She had many behaviors such as being secretive and concise. She wasn't a big leader- just a leader for her kids. She has the ability to pretend. But, she had an illness at infancy.
5: Lydia Darragh was an awesome, Secretive person. She died in December of 1789 at the age of 60.
6: Lydia Darragh did an interesting thing in her life that I didn't mention. ~Lydia kept the Secret of being a Spy for General Washington from her own family.
7: Lydia Darragh, I think, is a unique person. My favorite part about learning her life was that I got to know how she helped General Washington's army battle the British. I can't believe that Lydia was a spy!!!!!! If my sister ever did research on her, then she would be TOTALLY JEALOUS of her. (She wants to be a spy so bad!!!!!)
8: Thanks For reading the book!!!! Hope that you liked it as much as I do!!!!
