Kate’s Army


During the Napoleonic Wars, fought in the mountains of northern Spain, the small British army was forced to retreat towards Corunna. In those days soldiers families often travelled with the fighting men, but many of the wives and children were left behind in the retreat. A group of young girls, among  whom were a sergeant’s daughter, Kate Clancy, and a colonel’s daughter, Johanna Hamilton, were trying to catch up with the British army.
