In this lecture, Bill Merchant will explain the role of women on the D & H Canal. In his study of the workers digging the early North American canals, Common Labor, Peter Way wrote, “Women rarely figure in the primary sources that have survived, having been, even more so than male workers, silenced by history”. Yet they were an important component of the overall workforce.
In this hybrid lecture, historian Bill Merchant, will give a presentation on the role of women workers and residents on the D&H Canal. Learn about the lives and diverse experiences of women who built and worked on the Canal.
Bill Merchant, Deputy Director for Collections, Historian and Curator of the D & H Canal Museum will be the presenter on this date
