In October 1861, a group of teenage daughters of elite Cambridge and Boston families formed a group, known as the Banks Brigade, that met weekly through the Civil War to make clothing and bandages for Union soldiers. After the War, they changed their name to ‘The Bee’ and continued to function as a social and charitable club until 1931. Join Mount Auburn docent Steve Pinkerton to celebrate the lives of these remarkable women.
