misc_none 12:00 AM  -  12:00 AM Miss Alice's Closet: Women's Clothing from the 1880's -1920's Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Tour (and touch!) a selection of clothes from "Miss Alice's Closet" in the library's gallery.

This collection of clothing was loaned to us by Tinker Murphy, Avon Resident.

Who was Miss Alice? 

Alice Holt Kinyon was Tinker Murphy’s great grandmother. The black Victorian dress, and the blue and salmon dress, was worn to her son Sidney and Florence's wedding.  The rest of clothes probably belonged to Tinker’s grandmother, Florence Riddell Kinyon.  All of these items came from  Alice's old trunk in the attic in  Owatonna, Minnesota.

On Saturday, March 28 at 1:00 p.m. a lecture entitled “The Legacies of the Civil War in Our Own Time” will be presented by David Blight, PhD, Professor of American History at Yale University at the Avon Town Hall, Building #1, Selectman’s Chamber, 60 West Main Street (Route 44), Avon.

Dr. Blight will talk about the complexities of the Civil War and reconstruction. Quoting from his lecture by the same name available online, “…the most vexing piece of our past for the public to process.” Both events are open to the public, free of charge. They are being sponsored by CT Humanities. The Society’s exhibit “Legacies of the Civil War” looks at the closing campaigns, the way in which the war was remembered in Connecticut and the long-term outcome of the war. The exhibit features period newspaper broadsides announcing the end of the war; maps and pictures showing all the Connecticut regiments actions during the various battles; descriptions of the final assaults at Petersburg; story of the Connecticut men of the 1st Connecticut Calvary who escorted Lt. General Grant to Appomattox for the final surrender; and photos and locations of many of the monuments in the state commemorating the Civil War that are visible today
