Looking for something to do this Women’s History Month?
This March, celebrate Women’s History Month with The Army Historical Foundation and plan a visit at the National Museum of the United States Army. Explore the hidden lesser-known role of women in the American Revolution, the heroism of Clara Barton—the Civil War “Angel on the Battlefield,” and the service of the “Hello Girls” of World War I. Trace the rich legacy of women serving in the U.S. Army by exploring their stories highlighted throughout the Museum.
Below are the Museum’s Women’s History Month events. More details are available on the Museum’s online events calendar:
• “Compelled to Face Danger: Clara Barton and the Civil War” with Dr. John Maass
