The Grand Review Parade
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.
