The Van Lews have spent years creating and perfecting their living history programs.  Jill, dressed in 1860s clothing, will share fashion and proper etiquette. Hawk, also dressed for the period, will give the men’s perspective and share clothing, accoutrements, and historical facts about the war.

The highlight of the program will be the wonderful melodies of the songs of the North and South presented in Jill’s unique a cappella style.

The Westchester Township History Museum is a free cultural and educational service of Westchester Public Library.  The museum is open to the public Wednesday-Sunday from 1-5 p.m. or by appointment. Groups may make reservations for tours by calling the museum at 983-9715.
