Standing Among Heroines

Considering myself an ordinary, Midwest American woman, I don’t hobnob with the great figures of my time. My friends are more likely to be nurses, teachers, or clerks than anyone interviewed on the news.

But on a vacation several years ago we stood among some great historical figures. Well — sort of.

A daughter-in-law and I stand among the figures at Women’s Right National Historic Site.

If you ever find yourself in upstate New York — I suggest a side trip to Seneca Falls and this fine, educational attraction. These were brave women to gather in 1848. Yikes! My ancestors, and those of DIL, were still in Europe at the time.
