Stagecoach Mary in History

I wanted to write a blog today that was short, and had some history. So, I reached into my bag of “notes that might someday end up in Our Blog” and here is today’s blog.

Do you know the history of Stagecoach Mary. (Wikipedia)  I suspect that even a picture won’t be a reminder:

She was from Cascade, Montana. In 1895, at the age of 60, she became the first African-American woman to work as a mail carrier for the U.S. and only the 2nd woman to do so at that time. She was also credited for never missing a day of work and for being the fastest applicant to hitch six horses.

Now that’s good employment history! And obviously, based on her photo, no one tried to take the mail from her! We remember you, Mary Fields, in Our Blog today!

And for pic o’ day, I thought I would post a reminder, in case you also forgot to do this on Saturday night

Which would give an excuse for this!
