The Civil War Tea at the Stegmaier Mansion B&B in Wilkes-Barre PA was a most memorable event! Guest speaker Carle Welter amazed the guests with her ensemble, artifacts and stories. John Thomas Grant, a photographer/author read letters from his extensive collection of Civil War letter lots, many written on the field. John is working on a fiction book set in the Civil war era, among his other projects. Historian Victoriana Lady Lisa Lewis was dressed in authentic second year Victorian Mourning clothing. She displayed photos of her grandfather Samuel Martin, a Quarter Master sergeant in the Union army and a rare handmade Civil War flip doll. Several other wonderful reenactors were present as well dressed for the period adding to the ambiance.
