Landmarks to Dr. Mary E. Walker and Harriet Tubman

During my recent booktalk/signing at Seneca Falls, New York, I took a side trip to Oswego to visit the grave of Dr. Mary E. Walker, who was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for her Civil War service.  I also revisited Harriet Tubman’s grave in Auburn, New York.  I’ve been locating and photographing landmarks–statues, memorials, graves, etc.–to women for more than twenty years.  Women & their lives and contributions may have been & still are absent in traditional historical narratives, but there are landmarks galore! More information about these photographs are posted at:

My August booktalks/signings are: August 26th, Johnstown, NY (Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s hometown) and August 27th, Peterboro, NY (site of ECS’s cousin Gerrit Smith estate)
