Mary Ball Washington & the Challenges of Writing Women's History

March 25 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Mary Ball Washington, the Mother of Founding Father George Washington, has received considerable historical attention, but little of it accurate and much of it gratuitously hostile.
In this talk, Martha Saxton, the C.V. Starr Center for the American Experience's 2017 Patrick Henry Fellow, will share new research about Mrs. Washington's life and discuss various difficulties inherent in writing about women in this period of history.

This program is co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Kent County and Kent County Public Library.

Refreshments will be served. All are welcome.
