Bill Memorial Library

The Bill Memorial Library in the City of Groton will host Dr. Roger Smith as he presents “Women of the American Revolution: Lost Voices of America’s First Generation” on Tuesday, November 14th at 6 pm.

This talk is about some of the most amazing, yet little-known, participants in the American Revolution, gathered from various collections of reports about women from each colony, of all races, free and enslaved. These women dared to resist the “norms” of 18th-century western culture in order to stand for their beliefs and their rights. These are stories of courage and hope from the nation’s first generation that would inspire women throughout the course of American history.
Registration is requested; please stop by the library or call 860-445-0392 for further information or to register.
