Under the Veil: the Elizabeth van Lew Story

When: Sat., April 7 2018
Price: Free.
In the wake of the bloodiest day of the Civil War, news of Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation reaches the Capital of the Confederacy. A pair of Richmond women latch onto these rays of hope and wrestle with the next step in their fight for freedom. Will Elizabeth Van Lew and Mary Elizabeth Bowser successfully subvert the Confederate government from within the city limits? Or will their risk-taking lead them to exile, imprisonment, or even execution?
