DIHS April Program

Tuesday, April 17, 2018 - 7:00pm

On April 17, the Daniel Island Historical Society will present “A Handsome Assortment of the Newest Fashions: The Businesswomen of Antebellum King Street.” Serving as guest speaker will be Dr. Amanda Mushal, an associate professor of history at The Citadel. Women numbered among King Street’s entrepreneurs, offering fashionable bonnets and dress trimmings, china and glassware, dry goods and confectionary to Charleston shoppers. Dr. Mushal will discuss these businesswomen, examining where they purchased their stock, how they advertised their wares, how they responded to a changing business environment, and ways in which they themselves participated in the nation’s emerging consumer culture. Program to be held at 7 pm at Church of the Holy Cross on Daniel Island. All are welcome. www.dihistoricalsociety.com.
