The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

In Their Footsteps event set for March 19

 


Lewis and Clark National Historical Park, Fort Clatsop has announced the next In Their Footsteps free speaker series event. This Road We Traveled with Purposeful Pioneering Women will be shared by Jane Kirkpatrick on Sunday, March 19, at 1:00 p.m.

Jane Kirkpatrick is the award-winning author of 31 books, most based on the lives of actual historical men and women. She has spoken around the world about the power of stories in our lives. Her latest book, This Road We Traveled, is based on the life of Tabitha Moffat Brown, her daughter Pherne Pringle, and granddaughter Virgilia Pringle, women who took the first Applegate Cutoff in 1846. Tabitha was 66 years old and lame when she began the journey. It was what she did after arriving in the Oregon Territory that inspired the 1987 Oregon Legislature to name her the Mother of Oregon.

For more information, call the park at (503) 861-2471, or check out http://www.nps.gov/lewi, or Lewis and Clark National Historical Park on Facebook.
