Why is she a hero?
I think Mary is a hero because even though Florence Nightingale turned her down, she still went on do nursing in the war. She also opened her 'hotel' next door to Florence's place, which was brave. She helped every soldier, no matter how sick, and was like a mother figure. Most of the men called her Mother Seacole, and she would even go onto the battle field to asist the men and the doctors.
