In recognition of Women’s History Month, Fort Pulaski National Monument is pleased to announce three special event programs in March.
Sunday, March 13, 2:00 p.m.
Ladies, children, and gentleman of the public are invited to participate with park staff in a program about social activities of the families who lived at Fort Pulaski during the time of the Civil War. Tea will be served, and participants will have the opportunity to make (and take home) a “housewife” - a small sewing kit made by those at home for the soldiers to carry in their packs. Children will be able to make a yarn doll for themselves, and games for all will close the program. Attendees to this program are encouraged to wear period dress, but it is not necessary in order to participate.
Reservations are required as space is limited. Please RSVP no later than March 10 to Gloria Swift, Park Ranger, by phone at 912-786-5787 extension 218 or by e-mail.
