Anna Warner “Mother” Bailey
Who was she? What events shaped her life? Why do we honor her by preserving her home?
“Groton’s most celebrated heroine is Mother Bailey, whose famous flannel petticoat rocketed her to fame in 1813, making her the toast of the nation.”
~ From “Our Petticoat Heroine” by Carol Kimball
