The Civil War Herb Lady
Valerie Hamill, Reenactor
5/8/2023 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
What type of herb would be used on an artificial wound? Or in a fever-reducing tea? To calm a nervous disposition or upset stomach? Even to remove freckles. The Civil War Lady of Ohio (Valerie Hamill) will be sharing the medicinal properties of herbs used during the War Between the States during the 1860's. Mrs. Hamill will be in full period dress, with a variety or powerful, healing herbs to share. Guests will even be able to make their own Tussie Mussie ( a small bouquet) to take home. Mrs. Hamill has been a reenactor for nearly 20 years, and is a member of the 1st Ohio, Battery A Ohio Statehouse Unit and a founding member of the Rosecrans Command Headquarters in Sunbury, Ohio.
