Elizabeth Winthrop: All the Days of Her Life (DVD) $9.99 plus shipping
Elizabeth Winthrop: All the Days of Her Life is a fascinating look at the invaluable contributions women settlers made in colonial America, despite the strict social pressures of the time. From England to the New World, Elizabeth Winthrop and other Puritan women exhibited remarkable courage in the face of tremendous adversity. In this engaging docudrama, expert historians chronicle Elizabeth’s three marriages, the home schooling of her 11 children, her role as one of the first women land owners in the colonies and her negotiations with the Dutch in “New Amsterdam” to protect her land.
Elizabeth is an engaging and spunky heroine.
