The wife of Colonel Charles McDowell, the former Grace Greenlee, was alone when the British troops came and rounded up all the horses belonging to her husband. As they were about to drive them away, Mrs. McDowell stepped out and demanded an explanation. The soldier began, “the King hath need of your horses-“ whereupon Mrs. McDowell produced a pistol from the folds of her skirt and aimed it directly at the speaker, who hurriedly amended his statement, “Madam, the King hath no further need of your horses.” As he said this, he turned and rode away, leaving Grace Greenlee McDowell and her horses without argument.
