August 8, 2024 — 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. George Washington Presidential Library

Bring your lunch and learn about Library Fellow Lindsey M. Fisher-Hunt's research project, Mapping Their Influence: The Widespread Reach of the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association. This project explores the deep social, educational, and familial connections between women of the postbellum world and how they used those connections to save not just George Washington’s house, but historic sites across the Atlantic World. Created as both a digital history project for students and a coffee table book for a general audience, this work of public history will visualize the soft power that postbellum women utilized to create a culture of historic preservation across the United States and beyond.
