Melanie Desmond
“Conditions on the Frontier: Civilian Refugees during the French & Indian War”

Melanie Desmond spins, weaves, and hand-sews reproduction 18th C. clothing. She has over twenty years of experience presenting educational programs at historic sites in Maryland, northern Virginia, and south-central PA. With a BA in Anthropology/ Archaeology, and an MS in Education, she teaches in Washington County, MD. She enjoys engaging the public in discussions about textiles and clothing during America’s colonial period. Spinning and textiles are especially effective as “hooks” to get people interested in history. Note: This Lecture is held during the Colonial Fair; therefore there will be a $5.00 parking fee. (Members park free.)
