Otranto Road Regional Library - History books don't contain many stories about the women of all colors who lived in the Lowcountry in the early days of South Carolina. To help celebrate Women's History Month, CCPL's historian, Dr. Nic Butler, will profile the curious stories of four of the most intriguing "mystery" women of 18th century Charleston -- "Free Judy" Ladson, Maria Charleston, Eliza McQueen and Phoebe Fletcher -- and discuss their significance in the big picture of our community's history.
