“The Role of Women in the History and Development of Hilton Head Island” will be presented at 10:30 a.m. on Oct. 4, 2016 as a part of the Tuesday Morning History Program at The Heritage Library.
There were many strong women in Hilton Head Island’s History whose roles were defined by plantation life, isolation and war. Women on the island faced challenging but rewarding opportunities. They were pioneers who led the way and fought to establish a healthy lifestyle. This 1 and 1/2-hour presentation will discuss the roles and contributions of women while looking at the history of the island during the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, the isolation after the Union Army left and the development era to modern times. Join us as we discuss the history and the women who survived, contributed, and excelled on this island.
$10 per person; reservations are required. For more information, call the Heritage Library at (843) 686-6560 or visit heritagelib.org.
