Historian Craig Braack offers free lesson at the Bath Centenary Methodist Church
From the Steuben County Historical Society,
Louisa May Alcott lived up to her convictions when she went to Washington, D.C. to nurse wounded soldiers during the Civil War. After six weeks, though, she became gravely ill with typhoid fever. “I was never ill before this time,” she wrote, “and never well afterward.”
At 4 PM Friday (Feb. 2), Craig Braack will give us a free presentation on Women of the Civil War, telling us about the thousands who found their own ways to participate.
We hope you’ll join us at Bath Centenary Methodist Church, at Liberty and Washington Streets. The engraving is from “Hospital Sketches,” Alcott’s fictionalized memoir of her service.
