In June of 1775, Hannah Weston, 17 years old, and her sister-in-law, Rebecca, also a teenager, carried 30-40 pounds of gunpower and lead on foot through sixteen miles of woodland between Joneboro and Machias. They delivered the ammunition to the residents of Machias who had engaged the British ship "Margaretta" in what is considered the first naval battle of the American Revolutionary War.
