Have you ever been interested in becoming a living historian but you weren't sure where to start? This is the first installment in a series of lectures and classes to set you on the right path. In this lecture you'll learn all of the basics for Civil War Era Mourning and Civilian wear. This is an essential start for anyone interested in participating in our October Event Consolations of memory on October 1, 2016 but it is open to anyone who has a interest in the subject - not just our potential participants. This is a free event!
We'll also have information about how to sign up for re-enactment opportunities with the Mourning Society of St Louis and Friends of Jefferson Barracks.
