Trends in blue and gray: Reinholds woman plans lecture
Civil War-era clothing, culture, and customs will be the focus of a free lecture by the Reamstown Historical Society and Museum on Tuesday, Sept. 16, at 7 p.m. at the Reamstown Community Center, 24 E. Church St., Reamstown.
The presentation by Janice Grove of Reinholds will include many 1860s original photographs of men, women, and children, including carte de visite, stereoview, and ambrotype photographs. Newspapers and original books will also be shared.
Grove is a direct descent of a Civil War solider who fought with the Union’s 10th West Virginia Infantry. She and her husband Tom became interested in the Civil War period when they began participating in Civil War re-enactments in the 1980s.
“We discovered that studying original photographs was the best way to learn about women’s fashions, how they styled their hair, and wore jewelry, hats, bonnets, and other outerwear, such as coats, capes, shawls, gloves, muffs, and shoes during the 1860s,” she explained.
“Since little information was available at that time, we searched for photographs at local flea markets, auctions, collector shows, and eventually used eBay as a source.”
This free lecture is one in a continuing series sponsored by the Reamstown Historical Society and Museum. Parking is in the rear of the Community Center. For more information call 364-0865.
