Near the Bell Tower in Capitol Square stood the barracks of the Public Guard. There, from 1801 to 1807, lived John Lane and his wife, Anna Maria Lane, the only documented woman veteran of The Revolutionary War to reside in Virginia. She disguised herself and enlisted with her husband in the Connecticut Continental Line. In the garb, and with the courage of a soldier, (she) performed extraordinary military services, and was wounded at Germantown, Pa., in 1777. She followed Lane through his subsequent service in the Virginia light dragoons, and then, after the war, to the Public Guard. Granted a pension in 1808, she died on 13 June 1810.
