The Civil War Era Fashion Show at Tudor Hall

It was a great day to step back in time and enjoy the Civil War Era Fashion Show. Even though the threat of rain persuaded everyone to move inside, it did not hinder the enjoyment of the 41 guests, 9 models and 5 volunteers on 9-11-11.

Eight members of the The Civil War Dance & Arts Society did a beautiful job modeling. The presentation showcased: ladies and children in day dresses and formal wear; gentlemen in civilian clothing , formal wear, Union and Confederate uniforms. This delighted the multi-generational audience and sparked curiosity and a lot of thoughtful questions. The program concluded with a presentation of an extensive photo display and beautiful ladies jewelry.

The guests were then given a tour of Tudor Hall and learned about the history of the Booth family as well as Tudor Hall. It was an afternoon of fun, history, and a step back in time.
