Layers of History
Enjoy a unique demonstration and presentation by Hannah Wiest, local American Civil War
historian, who will present a revealing history about ladies’ fashion and undergarments during the
early 1860s. She will expose each layer and the purpose of the individual garments and explain
how the fabric content, print, dress style, and cut all revealed a woman’s class, age, and social
standing. Wiest will be dressed in a complete ensemble and have many other garments to show
as well as a PowerPoint presentation.
Hannah is a history enthusiast and works as a historical interpreter at Carriage Hill Farm and is a
very active member of the Ohio Valley Civil War Association.
