Famous Southern Women in the Revolutionary War

Flora MacDonald, the Jacobite heroine. Flora is famous for helping Bonnie Prince Charlie escape from Scotland after the defeat at the Battle of Culloden, disguising him as her maid, Betty Burke. She died in Kingsburgh, Skye, in the same bed in which Bonnie Prince Charlie had slept during his escape. Her funeral was said to have been attended by over three thousand mourners, and three hundred gallons of whisky were drunk at it.

Perchta or Berchta was once known as a goddess in Southern Germanic paganism in the Alpine countries. Her name means "the bright one". Perchta was at first a benevolent spirit. In Germanic paganism, Perchta had the rank of a minor deity. That changed to an enchanted creature (spirit or elf) in Old High German - such as Grimm describes - but she was given a more malevolent character (sorceress or witch) in later ages.
