Mary Fields was born a slave in Tennessee in 1832. Freed after the Civil War, she moved west and settled in Montana. In 1895, at 60 years old, Fields was hired as a mail carrier because she was the fastest applicant to hitch a team of six horses. She never missed a day, and her reliability earned her the nickname “Stagecoach Mary.” If the snow was too deep for her horses, Fields delivered the mail on  snowshoes carrying the sacks on her shoulders.
