The new Maryland Museum of Women’s History has launched its first major exhibit. The subject of the online exhibit is the most controversial woman in Maryland history, Anna Ella Carroll. She was a woman whose greatest credential should be having helped Governor Thomas Hicks keep Maryland in the Union during the War of Rebellion or the Civil War. The exhibit presents the beginnings of her life, how she became the great national policy pamphlet writer of her day, and the controversy over her title of having conceived the Tennessee Campaign, causing Grant to win the first of his battles.

 The Maryland Museum of Women’s History, newly founded, is in the process of restoring its building to meet code and will formally open in about 18 months. In the meantime the first exhibit is online at Anna Ella Carroll Exhibit, aecex.org.  The Museum is located on the Eastern Shore in Queen Anne’s County. Their first major event to honor all Maryland women in agriculture will be July 14th from 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. This online exhibit was organized by Queen Anne’s County Historian Mary Margaret Revell Goodwin who is also the president and founder of the Maryland Museum of Women’s HistoryThose who wish to reach Ms. Goodwin may do so at mebefoundation@gmail.com.
