Remarkable Women in New York State History by Helen Engel, Marilynn Smiley

The significant events in New York State history are well known to educators, students and New Yorkers alike. But often, the role that women played in these events has been overlooked. In this book, members of the American Association of University Women in New York State have meticulously researched the lives and actions of some of New York's finest women. Some of the names are renowned, like the great emancipator Harriet Tubman, who settled in Auburn, and some are less so, such as Linda Tetor, who fought for the rights of senior citizens in Steuben County and throughout the state. Discover the stories of these indomitable women who, from Long Island and Manhattan to Buffalo and Fredonia, have steered the course of New York's history from the colonial era through today.
