Women at Fort Boonesborough

Brief Description

Fort Boonesborough is one of Kentucky's most historic places and, although seldom mentioned in popular accounts, women were present from the very beginning. This work includes women whose presence at the fort can be reasonably documented by historical evidence. The time period was limited to the years between 1774, when the fort was established, and 1784, when the threat of Indian attacks had subsided and the fort's stockade walls were taken down.
