Anna StrongPlayed by Heather Lind

Heather Lind as Anna Strong

Anna is a smart, headstrong woman who has been friends with AbeBen and Caleb since they were children. Three years ago, Anna was engaged to marry Abe until the engagement was broken off by their respective fathers: her father a liberal Whig and Abe's a staunch Tory. As the British marched into town and drove her family out, Anna married Selah Strong, a known Whig, in the wake of her broken engagement. Since then, whispers have implicated Anna as a Patriot sympathizer. Despite being married to others, the connection between Abe and Anna remains strong and perilous circumstances of the war draw them closer together.
