Abstract:
Flora MacDonald was regarded as fierce heroine in her native Scotland before arriving on the Killiegray plantation near Fayetteville in 1774. She encouraged fellow Scotsmen to take up arms against rebellious colonists that met with disaster at the Battle of Moores Creek on February 27, 1776. Three years later this tenacious woman lost her plantation as was forced to return to Scotland.
