The capture and rescue of Jemima Boone and the Callaway girls is a famous incident in the colonial history of Kentucky.
They were captured by a Cherokee-Shawnee raiding party and rescued by Daniel Boone and his party, celebrated for their success.
The incident was portrayed in 19th-century literature and paintings:
James Fenimore Cooper created a fictionalized version of the episode in his novel,
The Last of the Mohicans (1826).
The incident was the subject of a painting entitled
The Abduction of Boone's Daughter by the Indians (c. 1855)
