Just when I think I've seen it all...along comes this:
The Hannah Duston Bobblehead, created by the New Hampshire Historical Society.
Hannah Duston (1657–c. 1736) is believed to be the first woman honored in the United States with a statue. In 1697, Hannah and her newborn baby were taken as captives by Abenaki Indians during a raid on Haverhill, Mass. The Abenaki “dash’d out the Brains of the infant, against a Tree” and forced the recuperating mother to march through the wilderness with one foot bare. On March 30, at an island in Penacook, N.H., she killed and scalped her captors. The event became well known, due in part to the account by Cotton Mather in his "Magnalia Christi Americana" (1702) and retold by, among others, John Greenleaf Whittier in his short story "The Mother’s Revenge" (1831). Two monuments were erected to Hannah Duston’s memory, one in Haverhill, Mass., dedicated in 1879, and the other at the site of her escape on Penacook Island, dedicated in 1874.

Bet your Great, Great, Great, Great, Great, Great, Great, Great, Great, Great, Great, Great, Great Grandmother doesn't have a bobble head in her honor.
Nyah nyah na nyah nah!
(For those who may not know...Hannah Duston was my ancestor, and I blogged her story a few years ago. If you are interested, you can read the story; a link is posted on my sidebar as Dustin Family Saga. By the way, Hannah also is available as a commemorative Jim Beam bottle as well. The girl has style, don't you think? )
