Lunch and Learn: Baltimore Women and Benevolence During the Civil War

Registration encouraged, but not required. Click here to register through Eventbrite.

Want to know more about the largely untold story of Maryland’s Women and the Civil War home front? Please join us for an overview of their wartime roles as Rob Schoeberlein, the Acting Archivist of Baltimore City, recounts activities that range from nursing care and charitable work to smuggling and spying, with a few female soldier stories added as well. Lots of Baltimore history will be featured. You might have heard of the Cary sisters of “Maryland, My Maryland” fame, but what about Mary Prout and her friends? Come learn about women that you may not know, but who all deserve to be celebrated. 

ASL interpretation will be available for attendees.

Presented in partnership with The Maryland State Archives and The Maryland Four Centuries Project.
