Say Yes to the Dress 

When: Sat., Aug. 13, 5-7 p.m. 2016
Knox's Headquarters presents a fashion show of 18th century civilian and military clothing. You will see elegant ladies gowns of silk, gentlemen officer wear and the patched and worn garments of the lesser sort. Learn who would have worn the clothing, why it is constructed in that manner, and what function it served. Accompanying the clothing display will be a power point demonstration and narrator describing the portraits and research behind the gowns. Staff members of the New Windsor Cantonment and Knox’s Headquarters State Historic Sites have painstakingly researched and constructed by hand reproductions of period clothing.
