A Living History Presentation

In 1638, a British Catholic named Margaret Brent fled religious persecution and landed in St. Mary’s City in the Maryland Colony.  Margaret Brent would lead a remarkable life helping the fledgling colony and the local natives.  Along the way she would also become the first woman to own land in America, its first female lawyer, and the first woman in America to demand the right to vote!

Mary Ann Jung, an award-winning actress and Smithsonian scholar, portrays Margaret Brent as audience members assume the roles of Governor Leonard Calvert, the Piscataway Indians, and their chief.
