The Army of Two

Written by Betty Miles
Illustrated by Joan Sandin

A true story! Alone at the Scituate (Massachusetts) lighthouse, two girls save their town from attack from the British. It's 1814 and the United States and England are at war yet again. Becky and Abby are left alone by their father who tends a coastal lighthouse. When English ships appear in the bay, the girls find a way to trick the British into thinking they are an army. Fooled, the British navy sails away. The Town is saved! The brave girls are heroines--and it's as exciting as it is true.
