A Long Night for Sally Jouett

Jack Jouett rode his horse, named Sally, for 40 miles at night over difficult terrain. He was trying to warn the outgoing Governor of Virginia, Thomas Jefferson and the entire General Assembly that British Colonel Banastre Tarleton was coming to capture them. Sally is working on a book about her part of the ride. Should be out by the end of June 2014.
