During the 1800s, numerous courageous girls helped America grow bigger and better. Many are missing from our history books. Virginia Reed, at 12, survived the trek to California with the Donner Party. Belle Boyd risked her life to spy for the Rebels during the American Civil War. Kate Shelly, at 15, crawled across a nearly washed-out railroad bridge in a ferocious thunderstorm to 'stop' the next train before it come barreling through. These are just a few of the inspiring true stories of 19th century American Girls who made a difference in their world.
