Women in the Civil War

Many people are familiar with the hard-working, independent Rosie the Riveter of World War II who forged new opportunities for women.

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 starting at 3:00 p.m. Ben Lomond Historic Site, 10321 Sudley Manor Dr., Manassas, VA, 703-367-7872.
