Title: Dressing for the Occasion: Clothing Styles of the Ohio Company on the Ohio Frontier
Moving to the remote and unsettled regions of the Ohio Company purchase in the 1780’s required much planning and decision-making. The essential supplies had to be chosen carefully due to the distance traveled and space allowed in various modes of transportation. However, what shall I wear? Always a perplexing question. This program will look at the various types of clothing worn by the settlers through examination of period images as well as viewing reproductions of various clothing styles of both the men and women. Who knows, there might even be a fashion show. So please join us at Campus Martius Museum October 11!
