From the Courier News:
As the old saying goes, “Behind every successful man lies a woman.”
Dundee Township Historical Society members wholeheartedly agree and said it was high time that the women of Dundee’s past be rightfully recognized.
On Sunday, the group presented, “Women in History: The Story of Heroic Women in Dundee Township,” one of many public programs it has offered to help keep the area’s rich history alive.
It’s often been the men in Dundee’s past that have received all the acclaim for their roles in purchasing land, starting up companies, and furthering societal efforts such as the Underground Railroad.
However, none of those advances would have been realized without the help and support of their wives, according to DTHS president Marge Edwards.
