Local History Speakers Series continues with a talk by David Voorhees. Widespread female violence against men is found in the records of the 1689 New York uprising popularly known as “Leisler’s Rebellion.” Indeed, women played a prominent role in the uprising. This talk by the director of the Leisler Institute for the Study of Early New York History explores this outburst of activism among New York women a generation after the English takeover of New Netherland.
