Free lecture about women camp followers
During the lecture, Carrie Fellows, executive director of the Hunterdon County Cultural & Heritage Commission, will examine the life of the women who followed the Continental Army during the American Revolution. Through glimpses found in period references, writings and images, this talk will explore the reasons why women left reasonably secure situations for the uncertainty of following the army. Fellows will also describe the duties women performed and how they were compensated.
