The colonial period in Georgia relied on the extraneous efforts of colonization. Many of its grand stories rest upon the men of the era whom sacrifice and prevail through these experiences. Although these stories embark on reminisce of accomplishments that embellish within our history books, yet the question is left unanswered on the women. While researching information on colonial period within the plantation in Georgia, I found the topic of colonial women interesting. I wanted my topic to be on a particular individual that covers the whole dynamics of women in the colonial era as well as a story of such sacrifice. The individual that I chose for my research paper was Mary Musgrove. I found several sources that lead me to orchestrate an argument

Mary Edwards Walker accomplished a variety of amusing and intelligent things during her lifetime. She first enrolled in the Syracuse College of Medicine. Although her father was the one encouraging these medical desires, Mary thrived in this specific school system. In the year of 1855 Mary graduated with a Doctorate degree in medicine. Her enthusiasm continued, along with the development of the rest of her life. Mary not only had grown as an intellectual, but so had her independent stance in the world. Soon after she had graduated from medical school, she married the man in whom she loved and opened her own private practice. Mary still aspired to have a larger role among the community. After offering her business to the government, she applied for a role in the U.S. Army, however, she was denied and instead offered the
In the beginning of the book Mary was stuck in a room with no windows and never got outside, but in the movie she was allowed out of her room and did go outside to play. I thought that the movie did a better job with this then the book did. The book just kind of said this and then moved on with the story. The movie gave a little bit more detail on the subject. Her parents died by a large earthquake in the movie, but in the book they both died along with other people in their kingdom from cholera, and that is why Mary had to go stay with her uncle Mr. Craven. I don’t think the way her parents died really affected the story; it just changed the reason why she had to go live at Misselwaite Manor. When Mary was going to meet Mrs. Medlock at the train station,
What is your opinion on Mary Surratt’s terrible, unneeded hanging? Mary Surratt was an innocent woman who was accused of helping John Wilkes Booth with the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. She got hanged for it, but the person who actually did do something to help John Wilkes, Dr Mudd, didn’t get hanged, he got life in prison. The truth is, Mary Surratt should not have been hanged for her “crimes.” She was innocent because she didn’t do anything
Mary Dyer was born in England in 1611. She married William Dyer and went to Massachusetts in 1635. She was a good friend with Anne Hutchinson and shared the same views; they were Quakers. She was the mother of 8 children, two died shortly after birth. Mary had a stillborn daughter that was deformed and they buried in secret, because it was believer that either if a women preached or listen to a woman preacher their child would be deformed or that the deformed child was consequences of the parents sins. The Massachusetts banished the Dyer’s and Hutchinson’s because they stated that they were Quakers, and the colony could do it because of their beliefs. So they went to Rhode Island and co-founded the town of Newport. There now was an act in Massachusetts the anti-Quaker that gave the townspeople the right to banish any Quaker or hang them. Mary Dyer resisted this and came back to Massachusetts, they gave her the choice to be banished but
Furthermore, American Revolution Reference Library says “William died in 1778. When he died he left behind Mary and their young son John that was five. In 1789, Mary Hays married John McCauley. Some indicate it was a very unhappy marriage. She went back to working as a servant. In 1813, John died, Mary never remarried again. She worked as servant for the rest of her life. People described her as a short, heavy-set woman who had an abrupt manner. She loved children and was a tender, careful nurse to the sick. Mary McCauley did have a rough side, however. As the wife of a soldier, she had learned to swear and usually spoke her mind with some bluntness. In 1822, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania passed a bill that granted Mary McCauley 40 dollars and the promise of 40 dollars per month for the remainder of her life. U.S. records show that Mary spent the last years of her life living in the Carlisle home of her son, John Hays, and his wife Elizabeth.

The history of Jamestown and the early United States has been mostly told through the stories of brave and valiant men. Rarely, in these histories, do we hear of what incredible women also helped to shape and influence the successes in the early United States. This is an incredibly important issue because women played just as a big of a role in the founding of the new world as men did. In May of 1607, around 108 Englishmen made their way to America and landed on the banks of the Chesapeake bay. They called this new place Jamestown, after the reigning English King, James the 1st. This new region was not intended to be their permanent home, but a place they could collect gold and silver from and then return to England. This is where the story
