Dorothy Wickenden

From the intimate perspective of three friends and neighbors—the “agitators” of the title—acclaimed author Dorothy Wickenden tells the fascinating stories of abolition, the Underground Railroad, the early women’s rights movement, and the Civil War. These crucial American stories are enriched by glimpsing them through the friendship of these exceptional women who spent decades violating the laws and conventions of their time.
