“Not Respectable” – The Enterprising Women of Civil War Frederick Walking Tour
August 4 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm EDT| Pay-what-you-please
Hear the harrowing tales of Frederick’s Civil War women.
Meet the remarkable women who shaped Frederick during the Civil War-era. While soldiers marched off to war, the ladies battled on the home front. Many supported organizations which provided relief for their husbands, brothers, and sons who served in the army. Others entered the realm of politics and business to reshape Frederick forever.
Join historian John Lustrea as we explore the stories of these powerful local women on the First Saturday in August at 3 PM. The walking tour will meet in the museum’s lobby area.
This will be a “pay-what-you-please” program. Early registration is highly encouraged.
