Women’s History Month: Mother Theodore and a stagecoach

Mother Theodore Guerin and her sister-companions traveled by stagecoach over the Alleghanies. The trip was indeed a dangerous one. Mother Theodore writes:

“The roadway at times inspired terror also. On one side vast, jutting rocks would overhang, upon which were giant trees apparently uprooted and ready to fall at any moment; on the other hand, frightful precipices, whose depths one cannot fathom, were ready to swallow us up if our horses made the least false step. This was not the only danger. Bandits infested the mountains, and we had to travel both day and night.”
