UTICA — Join Park Ranger Valerie Morgan for a lively presentation and discussion about some of the forgotten females of the Revolution and discover how women right here in the Mohawk Valley helped to make a difference at the Oneida County History Center.
Women were just a few of the “camp followers” who were associated with the Continental Army. How did the perception of the women of the Army change from the start of the war to the end? Why was their presence so important to the outcome of the war? Who were some of these women?
This online program takes place on Saturday at 11:30 a.m. The event is free and open to the public.
Advanced registration is required and can be completed at https://www.oneidacountyhistory.org/programs.html.
