Profiles of Martin’s Station (1775): “Nancy Ward”
1775 was a tumultuous time for all living on the western frontier of Virginia. Native Americans were in a constant struggle between the demands of a changing world and protecting their old ways. Colonists wrestled with liberty and loyalty. But one thing remained common for all: the instinct for survival. We cannot…we must not ignore history.

She delivers a stirring first-person interpretation of Nancy Ward, the “Beloved Woman of the Cherokee.”
