Another American Girl blog post, but I hope you enjoy it. Caroline Abbott was introduced later than the rest of her dolls, but that does not make her story less inspiring. Growing up during the War of 1812, Caroline is the daughter of a sailor and a typical housewife. Caroline dreams of being a sailor like her father one day and enjoys fishing. However, when her father ends up becoming captured, Caroline must put her courage to the test leading many of her friends to call her a hero. Caroline’s story is one that is truly unique for what she is able to accomplish for young girl her age in a time of war.
