Civil War Sisters Stories – July 13

July 13, 2019 @ 12:45 pm - 1:15 pm


Sisters in Emmitsburg and in congregations throughout the country were called to serve during the Civil War. Their charitable efforts brought healing and solace to the wounded on both the battlefields and in hospitals. Discover how the Sisters provided hope in the midst of suffering and despair during our Civil War Sisters Stories.

Sisters from various congregations and other Seton/Civil War scholars will be on-site to discuss what sisters in the 1860s experienced during the Civil War. On July 13, one of our Civil War tour guides will lead the talk. The event is free.
