"Healing the Wounds of War: The Brooklyn Sanitary Fair of 1864"

At a lively festival in 1864, thousands of women volunteers raised more than $400,000 ($4 million in today's currency) to aid the Union Army. The event is brought to life through a display of wares that were sold there, including a handmade doll with several outfits and accessories.
