Virtual Third Thursday Talk: “Her Life in Letters: Angilique Martin” By Linda Lockhart

Thursday, April 15th, 2021 7pm – 8pm

Angelique Le Petit Martin, a well-educated native of France and successful teacher in England, arrived at Tupperford Farm, in Marietta, when her husband Gilles brought their family west in 1833 to escape the cholera epidemic in New York City. Her intelligent, strong, well-reasoned arguments on women’s equality were captured in her correspondence and the essays she published, broadcasting her opinions, ideas, and influence far beyond her own back yard along the Muskingum River. We will explore Angelique’s life and how writing empowered her participation in public discourse and activism at a time when women were mostly regarded as incapable of self-directed action.

This virtual offering is free. Donations are encouraged.
