Women Making the Cattle Drives
Drovers, wranglers, men and women made the historic cattle trail drives of the west. Yes, women! Some went with their husbands, some went as young girls with their families, and a few took their own herds, under their own brand up the trails. They worked the same long hours and did the same hard work as the other wranglers; endured all manner of hardship and did not ask for special treatment.
Who were these women? Were they successful? What connection do they have to our central Texas area? Why did they not make most history books? Answers to these questions and the complete story of 'Women Making the Cattle Drives from Texas' will be presented at the March 22 meeting of the Georgetown Heritage Society. March is National Women's History Month and the program follows this year's theme: 'Celebrating Women of Character, Courage and Commitment.'
The speaker is Beverly Scott, a historian, writer and speaker. Her background includes several years as an educator before moving into the corporate world doing management training and development but her love of history pulled her back into historical work, writing, speaking and teaching memoir writing.
The program will be held Saturday, March 22 at Grace Heritage Center, 811 South Main Street, Georgetown.
Coffee is served at 9:30 am; program begins as 10:00 am.
The program is free and open to the public.
