This collection, from the Montgomery County Historical Society, contains photographs, letters, memos, and clippings documenting the activities of the District of Columbia branch of the Woman's Land Army of America during WWI. Young women did men's work including ploughing, harvesting, handling work horses, and haying. The women were commonly referred to as farmerettes. The collection was donated by the granddaughter of Susan Ransome, one of the early farmerettes who worked on Montgomery County Farms.
