Mrs. Josie Galloway Loudenslager - "An Oral History Session"

 

History Speaks at the Village recently presented "An Oral History Session with Mrs. Josie Galloway Loudenslager". Part of the mission of Eastern Carolina Village and Farm Museum is to interpret the stories of agricultural life in Eastern North Carolina from the 1840s to the 1940s. In her stories about her life growing up in a farming family in rural eastern North Carolina during the Great Depression, "Miss Josie" described how they planted their annual garden, “I sowed the seeds and Mother covered them with her hoe." Her writing and storytelling paints detailed pictures which preserve memories of family and lessons learned.
