Minnie Freeman

In 1888, a teacher named Minnie Freeman saved all of her students after a freak blizzard struck in Nebraska. The winds were so strong that the roof and the door just blew off of the school. She saved them by using a rope. She tied the kids together and trekked over a mile in whiteout conditions to the closest farmhouse.
