Mercy Otis Warren

Life size bronze. Dedicated July 4th, 2001, in front of the historic Barnstable County Superior Courthouse. Mercy was a poet, playwright, and author of the first published history of the Revolution, and sister of the patriot James Otis, Jr. Because she was a woman, she was not properly recognized, but is known for her pamphlet concerning many ideas later included in our Bill of Rights.
