Mistress Margaret Brent, Gentleman, Visits Belair!
Tuesday, March 20, 2018
Celebrate both Women's History Month and Maryland Day at Belair Mansion! Mistress Margarent Brent, Gentleman, will be visiting the Mansion to discuss her role as one of Maryland's most important FOREMOTHERS. Mistress Brent acted as a lawyer, owned land, managed the estate of an important member of the founding Calvert family members and demanded not ONE but TWO votes in the assembly - something unheard of in 17th century Maryland. Character actress and interpreter extraordinaire Mary Ann Jung will bring one of Maryland's most important and influential historic figures to life. The program will be of particular interest to children in Grades 4 and 5, and we encourage their presence!
