Revolution to Republic: Four Women and the Birth of America

The Fairfield Public Library Woods Branch on Monday, October 15th is hosting a four-part lecture series called Revolution to Republic: Four Women and the Birth of America.

From the birth of Mercy Otis Warren in 1728 to the death of Dolley Madison in 1849, America progressed from being a part of the British Empire to an independent nation well on the path to westward expansion. The four-part series will discuss four women who not only served as witnesses to the American Revolution, but more importantly played a role in establishing the American Republic: Martha Washington, Abigail Adams, Mercy Otis Warren and Dolley Madison.

Dr. Mona Garcia will be the guest lecturer. She taught European history at the college level and is on staff as a Reference Librarian in the Fairfield Public Library system. She has presented papers at academic conferences in the United States and Great Britain, and has publications in her field of English history, one of which has been included in the Royal Historical Society Bibliography.
