Captured by Girls
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     "Are you sure this is going to work?" Grace Martin asked Rachel as they carried uniforms to a back room to change.
 
2     "It had better work, or we'll find ourselves in a heap of trouble," answered Rachel. "It's a blessing that both of our husbands are of a similar size to each of us, or we wouldn't be able to fool anyone and further the cause of the Revolutionary War."
 
3     The uniforms were a little loose. Hairpins helped hold the women's long, dark locks in place under their hats.
 
4     "You look like a fine young man," said Rachel teasingly to her sister-in-law.
 
5     "I do hope we aren't caught," said Grace. "I can only imagine what Mother Elizabeth would say."
