MHS Calendar of Events
Yankees in the West
6 October 2017 to 6 April 2018 Details
Study the revolution through the words and artifacts of the women who lived it. Women were vital consumers (and boycotters) of imported goods, and they functioned as heads of household while their male family members served in the military or traveled on political missions. We will explore the daily lives of these revolutionary women, including those who served as soldiers and secret agents, or followed the army as cooks and laundresses. The program fee includes a visit to the Museum of Fine Arts.
This program is open to K-12 educators. Teachers can earn 45 PDPs and 2 graduate credits (for an additional fee).
