Join speaker Denise Bennett and the Daughters of the American Revolution at 12 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 21 at the Kinsloe House, located at 618 W. Third Avenue in Corsicana.
PRESS RELEASE: Join us at Kinsloe House as we transform it into a 1770s “Coffee House” and hear the story of Clementina Rind.
Clementina Rind was a colonial American known as Virginia’s first female printer and newspaper publisher, publishing important official documents for the early colony and The Virginia Gazette.
In August of 1773, a week after her husband’s death, Clementina Rind took over the editorship and business management of the press without missing a single issue. As the editor, she was careful to preserve the integrity pledged in the press’s motto: “Open to ALL PARTIES, influenced by NONE.”
Her management of her deceased husband’s printing office in Williamsburg was incredibly successful, and through her newspaper, she helped shape the public consciousness on the eve of the American Revolution.
A big THANK YOU to our supporters:
