Film Synopsis:

Sybil Ludington was 16 years old as she courageously rode 40 miles to save New York during the Revolutionary War. She was born to Abigail and Henry Ludington on April 6, 1761. Colonel Henry Ludington was the commander of the local militia near Fredericksburgh Precinct, New York (later renamed Ludingtonville, and now part of the town of Kent) during the American Revolution. Sybil is known as “The Girl Paul Revere” and is a wonderful example of courage and faith.

On the night of April 26, 1777, at nine in the evening Sybil with her family received word that British troops had begun burning Danbury, Connecticut, which was only 25 miles away. Her father’s troops were scattered over a large area. Her father had to remain in position, the messenger was exhausted, therefore, Sybil took on the ride during a thunderstorm and rainy night.

As her ride started at 9:00 P.M., it ended at dawn. Riding twice the distance as Paul Revere the people and militia men heard her cry as Danbury was burning, “Muster at Ludington’s”, she shouted at the farmhouses of the militiamen. Sybil’s ride went full circle through Carmel, on to Mahopac, thence to Kent Cliffs, from there to Farmers Mills and back to the Ludington home. With stick in hand, she rode her horse and knocked on doors and managed to defend herself against the enemy that crossed her path with her father’s musket. As she returned to her home in Freidsburg, soaked from the rain, she found most of her father’s 400 soldiers ready to march. Because of her courage, Colonel Ludington with his troops were able to keep the British from a conquering victory against the colonies.
