Pioneers in Petticoats - Not a Weaker Sex

by Placerville Newswire / Apr 27, 2017 / comments


Coming to California in the mid-1850s in a covered wagon was not a luxury vacation. As women and children walked (not rode) across the plains, they picked up buffalo dung to use for fuel, and had not bathrooms or running water. 

Hear their own experiences ripped from diaries written by our pioneer ancestors. Definitely not a weaker sex…

Come enjoy a spring stroll through Sacramento's Historic City Cemetery for this enjoyable and educational tour. Saturday, May 6, 2017 at 10:00 a.m.
