When: May 15, 2012 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Location: NC Maritime Museum at Southport, 204 E. Moore St., Southport
Join the NC Maritime Museum and the City of Southport at the Southport Community Building, for the Third Tuesday Evening Adult Program, as we join Museum Educator, Lori Duppstadt, for a “lively” discussion of mourning practices during the Civil War. Discover how these customs shaped a culture, both north and south, suffering from war and disease. Although bullets were taking fathers, sons, and cousins, dreaded diseases running rampant destroyed soldier and family alike. Learn how sexual roles and familiar relationships drove the fashion of death and changed funerary practices.
