Up and ComingAPRIL 4: First Saturday Lecture
During the American Civil War, hundreds of women cut their hair, bound their breasts, donned men’s clothing, and reported to Union or Confederate army recruiters. Others served as scouts and spies.
Historian and author Diane Eickhoff will explore this fascinating topic in a presentation entitled “Female Soldiers and Lady Bushwhackers in the Civil War.” She will discuss how Missouri’s Civil War allowed women to defy traditional gender expectations for proper female conduct. The program is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 4, at the Arrow Rock State Historic Site Visitor Center Auditorium. It will last approximately one hour.
