Learn about the history of life in Charlestown and especially the challenges facing woman from Mistress Bradstreet, who quietly rebelled against the status quo and her Puritan community. Through her poetry, she recorded her experiences, political views, and religious turmoil. Bradstreet’s poetry was published in 1650 as “The Tenth Muse Lately Sprung Up in America.” Hear the story of Mistress Bradstreet told by Charlotte Gordon, author of “Mistress Bradstreet, The Untold Life of America’s First Poet.” Learn the difficulties of life in the New World for all the new settlers and especially for woman on Tuesday March 25, 7:30 p.m. at the Educational Room of the Battle of Bunker Hill Museum, 43 Monument Sq. There will be light refreshments. The event is sponsored by the Charlestown Historical Society and is open to the public at no charge.
