2012 AASLH Annual Meeting Plenary Address by Laurel Thatcher Ulrich.

Ulrich recounts her early years in the history field and the decision that brought her to become a historian of early America and the history of women.

She discusses individual women in the pioneer days of America that through their courageous actions, helped shape our nation.

Though these types of women often go unrecognized, Ulrich uses them as an example of the need for change in the way we study and interpret history.
