Subsequently, she became the first American woman to receive a pension for military service. To honor her, DAR got her remains moved in 1926 to a grave at West Point. Unfortunately, the remains are not hers. Rededication ceremony to be held in May 2018.
“Hanging fir trees upside down goes back to the Middle Ages, when Europeans did it to represent the Trinity. But now, Christmas trees are shaped with the tip pointing to heaven, and some think an upside-down Christmas tree is disrespectful or sacrilegious.
