A nice outing on a summer day

This is a reminder that my colleagues Louise North, Landa Freeman, and I will be giving a PowerPoint presentation at the National Historic Park in Morristown, New Jersey, on August 16 at 1 pm. It will focus on the lives of women during the Revolution and afterwards, using material from our book In the Words of Women. This site commemorates the encampment of George Washington and his troops during the winter of 1779-80, the coldest on record. Excerpts from Louise North’s latest book The Travel Journals of Henrietta Marchant Liston, the wife of the British ambassador to the United States from 1796 to 1800, will be included. The talk will be followed by Q & A and our book will be available for sale and signing. Do consider attending.
