Women's History Month Celebration
Time & Location
About the Event
The Southern Museum commemorates Women’s History Month in March. A special family guide will be available throughout the month so visitors can explore the role women played in the Civil War and locomotive history. On March 14, we will have an all-day celebration of the historical achievements of women. The Peachtree Handspinners will be onsite to demonstrate their craft and discuss the history of textile making. A special gallery tour at 11am, 1pm, and 3pm explores the varied experiences of women during the Civil War, while an all-day education table focuses specifically on the important role nurses played during the conflict. Rosie the Riveter, performed by first-person interpreter Carol Cain from 1pm to 5pm, brings to life the vital contributions women made in America’s factories during World War II. A special storytime for children and their caregivers takes place at 10am and 12pm.
