March is Women in History Month
This program highlights the incredible stories of Minnesota women who protected their homes, supported their soldiers, served the army in many different ways, and kept the hole fires burning throughout the four years of the Civil War. Their stories, long overlooked and forgotten, bring a new perspective to the history of America's most bloody war.
Saturday, March 9 at 2:00 p.m.
Women of the Civil War is sponsored by the Anoka County Library and is presented by the Anoka County Historical Society. This program is free and open to the public and is funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. For more information, call 763-717-3267.
