Civilian Stories

Tuesday, June 23, 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Most New Yorkers and Americans never saw combat in the Civil War, but many civilians still contributed to the War effort in meaningful ways. Celebrate those individuals at this program with historian and curator Jeff Richman. For one night only, Green-Wood’s exhibition To Bid You All Good Bye: Civil War Stories will be enhanced – featuring additional stories and objects that particularly pertain to civilian efforts at wartime. Learn of patriotic deeds by New Yorkers including Reverend Gordon Winslow and Rebecca Winslow, who founded the Sanitary Commission to support sick and wounded soldiers; Simeon Chittenden, who paid bounties to 14th Brooklyn recruits from his own funds; Ann Vanderpoel—founder of the Ladies Home Hospital; and many others. New items, including original promotional posters from the Sanitary Fair, will be on display in the exhibition for this day only! Following the exhibition tour, Richman will lead a trolley tour through Green-Wood to visit the resting places of these important Civil War contributors.
