A wonderfully illustrated tale of the adventures of two sisters, Abby and Becky, who helped to win the War of 1812. This tale has some elements of truth to it as Abigail and Rebecca Bates, daughters of Captain Simeon Bates, the first keeper of Scituate Lighthouse in Massachusetts, famously prevented the British from sacking the town.
