One tough mother trucker…
Hell has no fury like a woman scorned- William Congreve, in The Mourning Bride, 1697
This famous quote was written in the very year that Hannah Duston was forced to watch the brutal slaughtering of her newborn daughter (just one week old) and several of her neighbors while being held captive by Native American Indians during the Raid on Haverhill (1697).
While in captivity in what is now Boscawen, New Hampshire on Duston Island, she mounted up with an English boy and her nurse to scalp 10 of the murderous bloodletting savages that were holding them hostage. Now known as the “mother of the American tradition of scalp hunting”.
