Performing in period costume Trish Chambers tells a story that takes the listener into the world of Civil War Women. A world that became more complex than knitting socks and baking bread. They were left behind to fend for themselves, to manage homes, businesses and plantations. Roles, which up until the war, that had been traditionally performed by men.
Discover how their will to survive the war and to create a future for themselves and their families drove them from their traditional roles and into a new world for women. See how their legacies paved a pathway for women of the future.
Versions of the presentation are available for adults and children 5th grade and above.
Signed copies of Civil War Women: Their Roles and Legacies, a companion book to this presentation that profiles 50 women and their achievements can be made available for sale at all presentations.
