Patrick Driscoll was born and raised in New Hampshire. He’s currently a senior at Keene State College, and he is double majoring in History and American Studies. He has spent his college career creating projects and this is now his third WordPress site and project. The previous projects were based on Reverend John Crocker, who was a Civil Rights activist who got arrested in Jackson, Mississippi in 1961, and on the Finnish Community of Newport, New Hampshire. He feels bad that his previous project had virtually no women’s history in it, and wanted to do a Civil War project involving mostly women. He is currently interning at the Cheshire Historical Society in Keene and enjoys working out and playing video games in his free time.
