We have been reenacting for about a year now and my wife is thinking of doing a laundress inpersonation. I'd like to ask if anybody knows where she should start. I contacted the rangers at Fort Scott, and I've purchased the Book "Laundry and Cleaning Practices of the Mid-Nineteenth Century" By: Virginia Mescher.
We are in the Pittsburgh, PA area and part of the 63rd PVI.
Thanks again for your time. I saw a few post from a few years ago, so I figured I'd bring it up again.
