Mariah (Langston) Roberts!  I love this photo.  She is such a cute, little old lady.  With her sparkling eyes and apple cheeks, she looks like she would be a sweet, fun person to know.

Captured by Indians!  Captured by Indians is the story of a plucky young woman in the early days of the United States, who endured an unspeakable ordeal, and her husband who would not give up the search.

Tombstone Tuesday: Mariah Langston Roberts!  This is Mariah’s second award of the evening.  She was an amazing lady and this biographical sketch includes the story of one of her adventures during the Civil War.

You’ve got some great posts here. I can totally see why you picked the winners above the other nominees, but all posts were very interesting. I especially liked you nominees for the Best Screenplay.
