When the Civil War came, many couples had to part. What followed sometimes made for very dramatic stories.

The 2019 Mrs. Hayner’s Birthday Tea program will feature Millie Henley, who will present Love Lost and Found in the Civil War. Guests will hear true tales of lovers caught up in sweeping events beyond their power to control. Power Point illustrations add detail and interest to these romantic personal stories of the Civil War presented in 1860s style attire.
