Excerpt
In a quiet corner of the stately little city of Wheeling, West Va., stands a monument on which is inscribed: ?By authority of the State of West Virginia to commemorate the siege of Fort Henry, Sept 11, 1782, the last battle of the American Revolution, this tablet is here placed.? Had it not been for the heroism of a girl the foregoing inscription would never have been written, written, and the city of Wheeling would never have existed. From time to time I have read short stories and magazine articles which have been published about Elizabeth Zane and her famous exploit; but they are unreliable in some particulars, which is owing, no doubt, to the singularly meager details available in histories of our western border.
