DAR honors women with Mamie display

The Gettysburg Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution is celebrating Women’s History Month by displaying Mamie Eisenhower’s Dress at the World War II American Experience Museum in Gettysburg every weekend this month.

Mamie was an honorary regent of Gettysburg Chapter, NSDAR, and she donated a cocktail dress to them in the 1960s. 

Also on display are historical photos and information on how the local chapter was involved in helping the war effort, as well as information about what the DAR does today to fulfill its mission focus on education, historic preservation, and patriotism.
