Salem County Fair--August 2013
The Genealogical Society's booth at the Salem County Fair this year was modeled after a Civil War Hospital Tent as we honored local nurses, including Cornelia Hancock who nursed the wounded at the Battle of Gettysburg 250 years ago. On Wednesday evening, president Bonny Beth Elwell dressed as Cornelia Hancock as pictured above.
For the third year running, our team won Best Presentation at the Ice Cream Making contest, with one of our team members dressed in antique clothing as local Civil War nurse Cornelia Hancock.
