DAR Observes Women’s History Month

Keitha Callanan, a member of the Ongomingkway chapter, NSDAR of Marquette gave a presentation concerning both Women’s History Month and the 250th anniversary of the Edenton Tea Party at a recent meeting held at the Cafe L’Anse. In 1774, 50 women living in Edenton, North Carolina joined together to boycott British goods and protest taxation without representation. This was a memorable event in American History as it was the first time that a political action was undertaken by women only. Callanan also made Edenton Tea Cakes which were handed out to the chapter members. The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution supports patriotism, education and historic preservation. All members trace their ancestry back to a soldier or someone who gave aid to the war for independence. The Onagomingkway chapter serves the western half of the Upper Peninsula.
