A fashion show will highlight the event by Dona LaValle, professional Civil War seamstress -- she will show a ladie's outfit starting with the undergarments to outerwear. Live models will strut the runway in a variety of 1860s clothing. Rita Reichle will present "the Language of the Fan." She has done much research on the way the ladies of the era expressed themselves with their fans.
