This July, our Chautauqua living history series goes virtual as Maryland Humanities raises the voices of four notable women who took action to secure their right to vote.
Join us as Mary Ann Jung brings Margaret Brent (1601–1671) to life. A British noblewoman who resided in St. Mary’s County in Colonial Maryland, in 1648, she became the first woman in Colonial America to request to vote.
