Early 1860s Fashion Show

On September 13th, Juleps & Viragoes, the Living History Department of the Cromwell Historical Society, presented this fashion show as part of the Cedar Hill Cemetery 150th Anniversary      celebration in Hartford.  The 45 minute program featured Civil War era clothing for women and children from the age of two!  The show features several fashion vignettes and a delightful and scholarly narration, all  prepared by Elizabeth Burgess.  To kick off our 2014 season, the     members of Juleps & Viragoes have agreed to provide us with an encore performance of the    fashion show following our potluck supper on September 22!
