Fashion of the Civil War Era


A Page out of Godey’s Lady’s Book: An Exhibit of Civil War Era Dresses

View six Civil War era women’s dresses dating from 1858 – 1865, from the Fort Hunter collection. Probably the most distinctive signature of Civil War era clothing for ladies was the hoop skirt, fashion in the 1860′s featured the hoop skirt as its largest width. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see high quality, period clothing.

The exhibit is part of the guided tour of the Fort Hunter Mansion.

Adults $5, Seniors $4, Students/Children $3.00 (Closed Mondays)
