In honor of Women’s History Month in March, the Lee Family Digital Archive will be featuring letters, diaries, and other papers from Lee family women. These documents will provide a unique glimpse into the lives of women in the 18th and 19th centuries. The LFDA will focus on transcribing, editing, and uploading documents that have not been published before.
