The Museum of the Confederacy's collections contain many fascinating examples of items Southern women made and used during the Civil War when everyday goods and resources became scarce. See items like a homespun dress, a raccoon skin shoe, and homemade soap and learn about their uses in this video.
The Museum of the Confederacy has brought together staff and other contributors to create educational videos for visitors, students, and educators. Watch these videos for more information on the Museum's world-class collection of artifacts and special projects. New videos are added every few months, so check back often.
