"Thank you Emily" monologue from The Hysterical History of the American Revolution

monologue for female
from the play
"The Hysterical History of the American Revolution"

Emily is one of the bravest women I know.  Much braver than that other messenger, Paul Revere, that everyone talks about.  

(mocking tone) 

"The British are coming. The British are coming."  Miss Geiger risked her life delivering a message that saved my husband's life.  He needed reinforcements but no man was brave enough to cross the British lines to deliver a message to General Sumter asking for help. But this woman was brave enough.  She carried the message and when she was captured, she swallowed it down to avoid giving up the sensitive information.  Having no evidence, the British released her and she delivered the message verbally to Sumter and brought the much needed help my husband needed.  Thank you, Emily.
