Mary Katherine Goddard: Founding Printer

Who is Mary Katherine Goddard?

According to Lux Mentis:

She was the first postmistress in the US, but far more importantly, she was a printer. While the first copy of the Declaration of Independence was famously printed by John Dunlap, the second copy (and the first printed names of the signers) was printed by M.K. Goddard. She also printed one of the first accounts of the Battle of Bunker Hill.
