Last summer, while researching Phoebe Pember for the Frazier History Museum, I read Union Nurse Jane Stuart Woolsey's book published at the end of the Civil War. Amazingly, I was cast to read Jane for the American Civil War Museum's new exhibit opening this year! (Not to mention I'm a big fan of their CEO Christy Coleman). Thanks so much for this opportunity! Give them a follow @ACWMuseum.
Almost ready for the new Suffrage performance at the Frazier:
"Cornelia Beach, a Louisville teacher at the Neighborhood House, decides to join the fight for women’s suffrage in 1917 at the invitation of Doris Stevens, a National Women’s Party leader. Facing certain arrest, she makes the journey to Washington D.C. to picket the White House with banner in hand to echo the famous words, “President Wilson, how long must women wait for liberty?”"
