Ladies of Lincoln's Era

AUDIENCE: General, School Groups

RENTAL FEE: RETIRED

SIZE: 50 linear feet

SECURITY: Limited

Look beyond the bonnet with the Ladies of Lincoln's Era traveling exhibition. Rejoice in 12 stories of mischief-making, trend-setting and pistol-wielding gals who made a difference in American history.

During their time, these women faced unprecedented challenges as abolitionists, spies, humanitarians, and agents of change. They embody independence, wit, charm, intelligence, and determination; elements required to brave an uncertain world.

From the feminine wiles of “Wild” Rose Greenhow to the first, First Lady of California, Jessie Benton Fremont, these unconventional women are still being talked about 200 years later. Other women featured in the exhibition include Harriet Tubman, “conductor” on the Underground Railroad; Clara Barton, who established the American Red Cross; and Sojourner Truth, abolitionist, women's rights advocate.

This panel exhibition invites host museums to bring out interesting treasures from your collection to personalize it with your local stories.

Developed by Mission San Juan Capistrano.

The exhibition includes:

  • 14 photo bio banners
  • Suggested ways to augment the exhibition through artifacts and vignettes
  • Suggested simple interactives
  • Interpretive materials for school groups
  • Exhibition Manual and Press Kit

Exhibition at the Forest Home Farms Historic Park in San Ramon, augmented with clothing and accessories from their collections.
