Sarah Bradlee Fulton. Dorchester, 1740. Medford, 1835. by Helen T. Wild, Secretary. By permission of the American Monthly, Washington, D. C. the names of the men who fought in the War of the American Revolution are carefully preserved in the archives of the State, but the women who through all those sad years endured hardship and loss, and who toiled at the spinning-wheel and in the hospitals for their country's cause, have long ago been forgotten. Only here and there a woman's name is found on the honor roll of Revolutionary days. Among the Medford women whom history has remembered, Sarah Bradlee Fulton has a prominent place. We have been proud to name our chapter for her, honoring with her all the unknown loyal women who worked and prayed in this dear old town of ours, for the cause of liberty. Mrs. Fulton was a member of the Bradlee family of Dorchester and Boston. In 1762 she married John Fulton, and ten years later they came to Medford with their little sons

Medford in the War of the Revolution. by Helen T. Wild. [Read before The Medford Historical Society, April 18, 1898.] FOR an old town, Medford is singularly devoid of traditions. Few of the old families are represented by name at the present day. Still, in unexpected places, we find stories which when compared with the records prove true. Even they are imperfect. Medford men who served during the War of Independence are not always credited to the town. The muster rolls, from 1775 t
A union of States none can sever, A union of hearts and a union of hands, And the flag of our Union forever.
