Bobbie Coles portrays an enslaved woman named Hattie, a slave Bobbie describes as a "nameless, faceless woman of the Civil War." Hattie was stolen from her parents, she says. Then her 10 children, sold into slavery, were stolen from her.
Bobbie is a member of the Female RE-Enactors of Distinction, or FREED, acting troupe. The troupe of women share the stories of women who supported the U.S. Colored Troops and fought for black rights during the Civil War era.
Prior to the presentation will be the election of the new board at the end-of-year Business Meeting. And we will have our Annual Potluck Social, so please bring a dish to share.
