Dr. Shaw portrays Sybil Ludington who was born in the mid-1700s and at age 16 took it upon herself to ride on horseback for over 40 miles in stormy weather to sound the alarm that men were needed to fight at the Battle of Ridgefield during the American Revolution.
Dr. Darla Shaw sat down with Elaine Kelemen to talk about her fascinating life in Ridgefield.
How different life would have been for Rachel Wallace Dauchy a Ridgefield resident almost 300 years ago!
If you have experience (professional or volunteer), managing projects from start to finish and are interested in Ridgefield, we have great volunteer opportunities for you!
