Book Synopsis
What was it like to live in northeast Ohio in the nineteenth century? To be an emancipated slave, walking hundreds of miles through mountains and forests in the hope of starting over. Or a solitary passenger on a Great Lakes steam ship, drenched and seasick in stormy weather. To be a doctor visiting an ill patient via horse and buggy in the dark of night, or the editor of a local newspaper, writing and handsetting the lead type for the next week’s edition.
 
FULLY EQUAL TO THE SITUATION reclaims the stories of a dozen women who all lived and labored in the rural village of Wellington, settled in 1818. Pioneers, cross-country travelers, social reformers, educators, entrepreneurs, and wage earners—their narratives span decades of sweeping change, from the colonial era to World War I. Painstakingly researched, each chapter presents an intimate portrait that is at once personal biography and American history.
