African American Women of the Old West
African American Women of the Old West | Tricia Martineau Wagner
1 post | 4 to read
The brave pioneers who made a life on the frontier were not only maleand they were not only white. The story of African-American women in the Old West is one that has largely gone untold--until now. The story of ten African-American women is reconstructed from historic documents found in century-old archives. The ten remarkable women in African American Women of the Old West were all born before 1900, some were slaves, some were free, and some lived both ways during their lifetime. Among them were laundresses, freedom advocates, journalists, educators, midwives, business proprietors, religious converts, philanthropists, mail and freight haulers, and civil and social activists.

I haven‘t read this book yet, but a search on the book cover photo of the woman is Stagecoach Mary who carried a rifle and a #revolver to protect and deliver the postal mail on her route during the Wild West days.
