Bobbie Coles portrays Hattie

by Bobbie Coles of FREED 

10:30 a.m.

Saturday, 21 Nov 2020


This year's historical re-enactor portrays an enslaved woman named Hattie, a "nameless, faceless woman of the Civil War." Hattie was stolen from her parents, she says. Then her 10 children, sold into slavery, were stolen from her.

Bobbie Coles is a member of the Female RE-Enactors of Distinction, or FREED, acting troupe. The troupe of women share the stories of women who supported the U.S. Colored Troops and fought for Black rights during the Civil War era.

Coming in 2021:
