A LOCAL WOMAN'S VOICE FROM THE 18TH CENTURY: THE REVOLUTIONARY WRITINGS OF EXPERIENCE WIGHT RICHARDSON
Sunday, January 11, 2015 2:15 pm.
Wayland Public Library
We hear about men marching off to war in the 18th century to secure American independence, making
momentous decisions at Town Meetings, and serving in town government. A few even attended college and entered the professions. But what
about the women who made up at least half the population? What were their thoughts and actions? Fortunately we can gain some insight
through the diary of Experience Wight Richardson, who lived in colonial Sudbury (today Wayland and Sudbury) during the turbulent years that
led up to the American Revolution. Jane Sciacca will share Mrs. Richardsonís story in a discussion of womenís lives in colonial times.
Refreshments will be served..
