"The Girl on the Land." The Women's Land Army of America in North Carolina, 1917-1920.
Anna Kiefer-Douglas teaches Humane Letters III (English and history) and Civics and Government at Millennium Charter Academy, a K-12 classical charter school located in Mt. Airy, NC; in her spare time, she is an adjunct professor at Lord Fairfax Community College in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, public historian. She has a B.A. in History from Washington College in Chestertown, MD, and an M.A. in Early American History from the University of New Hampshire. Her research areas run the gamut from logistics in the Seven Years’ War to the Woman’s Land Army of America in Virginia and North Carolina during the First World War. She is a founding member of the Civilian Contingent, a progressive public history organization dedicated to interpreting the civilians attached to, and affected by, the British Army in North America in the 18th century. She loves cats, coffee, books, and puns, but not necessarily in that order.
This event is free to the public with a suggested $5-$10 donation and is made possible thanks to the support of the National Endowment For The Humanities and North Carolina Humanities.
