Clothing of the Civil War Era

This program is recommended for students in grades K - 5

What did people wear in that period of history?
Clothing during the 1850s and 1860s not only identified the fashion of the day, but also projected the social values of the time and the distinct differences between male and female. Students will examine the cultural differences between past and present and share in the experience of wearing clothing of the Civil War era.
