Directly influenced by Queen Victoria’s deep mourning of her husband beginning in 1861, Americans emulated the world’s greatest trendsetter for their own mourning practices. From clothing, jewelry, funeral processions and the grieving process itself, Americans embraced mourning with strict guidelines. The March installment of the Sundays at 3:00 lecture series welcomes Montgomery County Historian Carolyn Ferrell to explore these practices and traditions that continued until World War I, with artifacts from the period on display.
