APRIL 19, 2018 - MEETING - MEADE HOUSE - 7:00p.m.

 

MAY 10, 2018 - PROGRAM - "Remarkable Civil War Women You Never Knew" presented by Millie Henley of Historical Connections. 

We've heard of Harriet Tubman and Clara Barton, but what about Mary Elizabeth Bowser or Elizabeth Thorn?  There are many women whose efforts never made it into the history books.  Hear stories of noteworthy deeds done by these more obscure women during the Civil War.  The talk features nurses, relief workers, teachers of freedom and surprising stories of daring spies and female soldiers disguished as men on the battlefields.

Henley believes that history is best learned through stories.  She points out that the very word "history" contains the word "story"!  The human interest stories will engage everyone, not just history buffs.

The program will be held at the Symmes Safety Center - 8871 Weekly (45249).  It is FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
