Citizens of Cumberland Valley Ladies Aid Society Program

One of the newest interpretive programs that the Citizens of Cumberland Valley will start offering is "Packages from Home". This program shows what type of items that we sent from the home front to those serving on the front lines of the American Civil War. Besides doing sewing demonstrations, our ladies will interpret many things on display from shirts and socks to soap, food, stationary items to bandages. The program was a hit with visitors at South Mountain State Battlefield and Washington Monument because it is a topic very seldom talked about. This program will be advertised shortly on brochures and will be given to children and adults alike. Great job to our civilian coordinator Alicia for putting this program together.
