Women in the Civil War Tours at Ben Lomond                              

11am – 5pm; $5 per person, free for children under six                                                 

Many people are familiar with the hard-working, independent Rosie the Riveter of World War II who forged new opportunities for women. Long forgotten are the women who either through choice or circumstance challenged and changed women’s roles in Civil War-era America. In honor of Women’s history month, join site staff for a guided, hands-on tour about these pathfinders for women’s rights.  Tours start on the hour with the last tour at 4 p.m.
