U.S. Army Women's Museum
The U.S. Army Women's Museum celebrates the *contributions of women to the Army from the American Revolution to present. A replica display of Civil War camp life invites visitors to try on period clothing, handle reproduction firearms and experience everyday life. Other exhibits show the contributions of women, such as Dr. Mary Walker, a contracted surgeon, and explain why some women disguised themselves as men in order to serve in the Armies of both the North and the South.
