Carin Bloom is the Manager of Education and Programming at Historic Charleston Foundation in Charleston, SC. Carin holds an Honors BA, two MAs, and a PhD ABD in Anthropology, all with specializations in Historical Archaeology (specifically Fields of Conflict of the American Revolution). She is an archaeologist and living historian by training, specializing in the public history of the 18th century in America. Carin focuses on lesser-known historical figures; those whose stories have not yet been told extensively still made important contributions. To that end, Carin presents as Catharine Littlefield Greene, wife of General Nathanael Greene of the United States Army. Caty’s story inserts much-needed women’s history into the story of the American War for Independence, as well as brings to light some of the harsh realities of the conflict that are often left out in favor of the triumph and tragedy of great battles won and lost. Carin is delighted to bring humor, sorrow, and inquisitiveness to her presentation, in her interpretation of what Lady Greene might share with an audience, were she alive today.
