Come visit Buffalo Gap Historic Village on Saturday, July 12 this summer, and be transported back in time during the Chautauqua lecture. You can listen to Cynthia Loveless Harriman tell the story of a Civil War era woman {{more}} through the use of Victorian clothing. Although Ms. Harriman focuses on ladies underpinnings to tell her story; it is not only the story of function, but of social class, sexiness, liberation, suffrage, inequality, financial business and survival. This lecture is a fun and entertaining way of looking at history and learning about the origins of the customs and practices still used today. Cynthia Loveless Harriman is the Director of Communication and Education at the Texas Civil War Museum in Fort Worth, Texas. She serves as a Senior Fellow for the Grady McWhiney Research Foundation and is a Trustee Emeritus for the Texas Confederate Museum collection. She is a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Daughters of the Republic of Texas, United Daughters of the Confederacy, Dallas Southern Memorial; and a member of numerous history and museum associations.
