    Meet the remarkable women who shaped Frederick during the Civil War-era. While soldiers marched off to war, the ladies battled on the home front. Many supported organizations which provided relief for their husbands, brothers, and sons who served in the army. Others entered the realm of politics and business to reshape Frederick forever.

    Join NMCWM historian John Lustrea as we explore the stories of these powerful local women on the First Saturday in June at 3 PM. The walking tour will meet in the museum’s lobby area.

    This will be a “pay-what-you-please” program. Register ahead of time to hold your spot, as space is limited. Visit the main event website on the National Museum of Civil War Medicine's website for registration information.
