Historic women from Providence, RI

On my trip to Boston, I detoured to Providence to visit a friend. PVD is a beautiful Rhode Island town with some great architecture and rich history. This episode features historic women from Providence, RI.

In this episode, I talk about Helen Metcalf, one of the founders of Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). I also share the story of Mary Dyer, a Quaker martyr. In addition, I talk about Elizabeth Buffum-Chace, an abolitionist and women’s rights advocate. And finally, Christiana Carteux Bannister, abolitionist and founder of the Bannister House.

Women’s Suffrage in East Tennessee

The stories of Elizabeth Avery Meriwether of Memphis, Lizzie Crozier French of Knoxville, and Anne Dallas Dudley of Nashville. And the story of Febb and Harry Burn and the ratification of the 19th Amendment.

A new book written by Febb’s great great grandson is available now. Click here to get it!
