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.

Rally on the High Ground Monument Repair and Maintenance Fund

Join the Rally to make major repairs at the African American Civil War Memorial in time for the Grand March Parade on May 17, 2015.

The African American Civil War Memorial Freedom Foundation, the non-profit tax exempt group that built the national memorial and museum and donated it to the US government is leading the drive to make much needed repairs in time for the Sesquicentennial Closing March Parade scheduled for May 17, 2015 in Washington, DC.

The work will be done pursuant to a cooperative agreement established with the National Park Service. The list of repairs include damaged light fixtures, skate board damage and protection, installation of new art and repair damaged grass and shrubbery and damage done by the gunshot to one of the plaques.

The African American Civil War Memorial Museum is the official host for the Sesquicentennial Grand Parade and we will get all the necessary work done to make this memorial and the cause for which it stands ready for the "Grand Review" said Frank Smith, Founding Director.
