June Roundtable Event
Roundtable explores use of herbs in Civil War Times



The Civil War Herb Lady of Ohio is our guest speaker for the June 16 meeting of the Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman Memorial Civil War Roundtable.

Valerie Hamill will speak on how herbs were used in Civil War times. Her presentation will be in the historic gardens of the Sherman House Museum, 137 E. Main St., in Downtown Lancaster, Ohio. The Herb Lady will also bring supplies for guests to make tussie-mussies, the tiny bouquets carried in the 19th century to offset the foul odors of everyday life.

The volunteer Master Gardeners who maintain the Sherman Gardens will provide refreshments that feature herbs in their ingredients.

The meeting is open to the public and begins at 7pm. Admission is $5. We hope all herb enthusiasts, Civil War buffs or not, will attend.

If the weather is too bad to meet outside, we will gather at Fairfield Community Church, 860 E. Mulberry. Check the Facebook pages of the Sherman House Museum or the Fairfield County Heritage Association on June 16 for any venue change.
