Want to know more about the largely untold story of Maryland Women and the Civil War home front? In commemoration of the Women's Suffrage Centennial, please join us for an overview of the wartime roles of women. Dr. Schoeberlein, the Acting Archivist of Baltimore, will examine activities that range from nursing care and charitable work to smuggling and spying, with a few female soldiers stories as well. You may have heard of the Cary sisters of “Maryland, My Maryland” fame but what about Mary Prout? Come learn about women that you may have never heard about before who all deserve to be known and celebrated. Feel free to bring your lunch and your questions to this free program!
