Some Revolutionary Women of the Southern Lake Champlain Valley

Sat., July 24, 2021 • 1:00—2:00 PM

Delayed from 2020—In honor of the 101st anniversary of the 19th amendment and women’s right to vote, this illustrated talk introduces some of the resilient women of Vermont’s southern Lake Champlain Valley during the American Revolution while providing national and regional context. How did the war interrupt their lives? What were their contributions leading to settlement and as founders of their new towns and the new nation?

The program will be presented by site administrator Elsa Gilbertson and site interpreter Paul Andriscin. It is part of larger project funded in part by Lake Champlain Heritage Partnership and Lake Champlain Basin Program.
