"Oh how have I been carried back this day to years long gone by...."

Diaries provide intimate - and often fascinating  - accounts of history.

Eliza Clitherall, an early American woman, and daughter of John Burgwin produced a 17-volume diary that has inspired a presentation by historian Donna Pope who studied Eliza’s life at length.  On April 23, Ms. Pope will lead a talk about the similarities of women’s lives then and now. She will specifically address the notion of duty to family and community, while at the same time painting the bygone landscape of the Lower Cape Fear. 

Admission is free: $5 donation suggested.
