Devotion and Honor: Eliza Burgwin Clitherall

Thursday, April 16
6:30 p.m.

Historian Donna Pope returns to the Burgwin-Wright House to talk about her facisnating research on the life of Eliza Burgwin Clitherall

Diaries provide intimate - and often fascinating  - accounts of history. Eliza Clitherall, a colonial woman and daughter of John Burgwin, produced a 17-volume diary, which is the inspiration for a presentation by historian Donna Pope.  On April 16, 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 colonial landscape of the Lower Cape Fear according to Eliza.
