FREED Ladies

Female RE-Enactors of Distinction: African American Ladies of the Civil War
Auxillary Organization of the African American Civil War Museum

Recognizing our struggle for freedom and in keeping with our traditions as an African American people, dressed in period clothing to portray women of the Civil War Era who contributed to our history, it is our mission to educate the public and to promote the accomplishments of the African American Civil War Soldiers and the women who supported their fight for freedom.  We engage in re-enactments, dramatic readings and various other educational programs in order to share the stories of these distinctive men and women.

DC Host Committee for the Opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture

The African American Civil War Museum has formed a city-wide host committee to develop a comprehensive series of activities specifically designed to expose the projected 150,000 visitors to the many contributions made by African-Americans in Washington, D.C.  The activities will begin September 18, 2016, and continue through September 26, 2016.  The activities will include plays and exciting concerts as well as events hosted by the Martin Luther King, Jr. Library and the African American Civil War Museum.  Further, on the day of the opening, there will be hourly shuttles from the African American Civil War Museum to a site within proximity to the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC).  All activities will be free and open to the public.

The African American Civil War Museum is a 501(c) (3) organization and is supported largely by donations.  Therefore, we are reaching out to members of the business community to request your support to underwrite these efforts.
