Mary Draper Ingles – Mar. 1, 2019

 In 1755, Mary Draper Ingles was captured by a Shawnee War party. With her extraordinary spirit, drive, and determination, she escaped to walk a long 800-mile journey from Big Bone Lick, Kentucky to her home in Virginia with only the Ohio River as a guide. Join Joyce Lovins-Browning as she retraces Mary’s steps with a first-person living history presentation.
