Talk on Women in Civil War

On Tuesday, March 12th there will be the talk “The Role of Women in the Civil War” by Rebecca Budinger

During the American Civil War, men were called to the front to fight, forcing women to re-evaluate their roles as wives, mothers, home keepers, and members of society.  This presentation will explore some of the many roles into which women evolved, most beyond anything they ever imagined.

Rebecca Budinger, originally from Buffalo, attended Nazareth College and took a Civil War course at St John Fisher. That opened her love of history and the Civil War. She began re-enacting in 1998. She has been the Community Relations Manager for Barnes & Noble in Greece for the past 16 years.

Ms. Budinger talk is Tuesday, March 12th at 7:00 p.m. Greece Community & Senior Center, 3 Vince Tofany Blvd. Greece Historical Society members FREE. A $2.00 donation is appreciated from others. Reservations are not necessary.
