Kids can make Civil War-era dolls at local museum on Aug. 16

During the Civil War, families conserved whatever they had. Money was scarce and many items were unavailable because they were needed for the war effort. It was not a time for children to be able to purchase toys; rather, they made their own. Yarn dolls were just one type of toy created by children during this time period. Area children will have the opportunity to create their own yarn dolls at the Tri-Cities Historical Museum's "Tuesdays History for Kids' program on Aug. 16.
