Explore Wallace House State Historic Site from the perspectives of ten women who lived and labored here when the historic house served as George Washington’s winter headquarters in the Revolutionary War. Meet women in slavery and freedom who carried the Continental Army through the Middlebrook Cantonment of 1778-79 from Hannah Till and Mary Maddox to Martha Washington.

Expand on their stories with a reflection on Old Dutch Parsonage State Historic Site’s roles in the long history of women’s suffrage in New Jersey from the eighteenth century to the Nineteenth Amendment.

Register for this online presentation with the NJ State Library.
