CARRY A. NATION

Bar Room Smasher & Home Defender

Carry Amelia Nation, or Mother Nation, was just a teenager at the start of  American's bloodiest conflict, the Civil War.  Born in the backwoods of Kentucky to slave owning parents, Ms. Nation witnessed first hand both the trials of slavery and emancipation of African Americans by conclusion of a war that pit brother against brother. 

In wake of war torn southern states, Carry made her home in Kansas with husband, and one true love, Dr. Charles Gloyd.  A captain in the army, Dr. Gloyd succumed to the trechery of demon alcohol, dying within two years of marriage.
