On the sesquicentennial of the birth of “Winnie” Davis in the master bedchamber of the Confederate executive mansion, this program examines the girl who became known as the “Daughter of the Confederacy.” Ruth Ann Coski, author of The White House of the Confederacy: A Pictorial Tour and curator of the Museum’s 1998 exhibit, “Lost Daughter of the Lost Cause,” will relate the surprising story of a woman who was so much more than her public image. Cost: Free for Members, $5.00 for Non-Members.
