It was dangerous, dirty work. One false move and you could be killed, along with those around you. Hear the tales of the young women and girls who risked – and sometimes gave – their lives to support America’s Civil War arsenal.  Award-winning author Tanya Anderson discusses her book, “Gunpowder Girls: The True Stories of Three Civil War Tragedies.” After the talk, join us for a 45-minute tour of Brown’s Island, site of the Confederate States Laboratory where many “gunpowder girls” worked and died during the war.
