LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — A symbol of courage from some of Lexington's past has been re-dedicated.

The Bryan Station Monument dates back to the end of the 19th century.

The Lexington chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution says during the revolution, Bryan Station was under threat from enemy troops and Native Americans surrounding the fort.

In the face of danger, we're told women bravely left the fort to do their part.

"So every morning, they would gather water for the fort. This morning they had to gather extra water for the fort because they had to make sure they had enough in case they were attacked," said Amelia Wisner, an organization member.
