Presidential Fun Fact of the Day

Anna Harrison

Anna's mother died when she was very young, and at age 4 her father snuck her past British lines to live with her maternal grandparents on Long Island. Her father was a Colonel with the Continental Army, and he put on a British uniform and made his way past the enemy to deliver his daughter safely to the care of her grandparents. He then snuck back and resumed fighting the British. He would not see her again until the end of the Revolutionary War.
