Capital Chronicles: Abigail Wright-First-Lady of the Capital Area (Ottawa)
Title: Capital Chronicles: Abigail Wright-First-Lady of the Capital Area
Speaker: Rick Henderson
Details: Rick Henderson is a 4th great-grandson of Philemon Wright and Abigail Wyman. Only a few paragraphs have ever been written about Abigail over the years because just a smattering of letters and an anecdote or two from contemporaries have survived her. Yet, the story of the brave woman who follows her husband to the wilds of Canada, a real leader in her own right, is surely a story worth telling. Rick has written two books on the subject of local history, Walking in the Footsteps of Philemon Wright was published in 2016, and this past summer, he published Capital Chronicles-The History You Were Never Told, which was the result of his online blog of the same name.
