Ann DeWitt is an African-American young adult historical fiction author and an up-and-coming Civil War living historian. This BLOG chronicles her journey to encapsulate the life of a 19th Century African-American woman for the continued advancement of Living History. Readers of this BLOG will witness the process of her (1) identifying the black woman whom she will portray at historical events, (2) selecting period correct Victorian fashion attire, and (3) bringing the 19th century portrayal of a Woman of Color to life.
Between June 2012 and December 2012, Ann searched to no avail for a BLOG about becoming an African-American Civil War Living Historian. Thus, she decided to create this BLOG called “A Civil War Living Historian: Transformation into a 19th Century African-American Woman—Victorian Style.” Also, this is a platform to show the beauty, strength, and resilience of 19th Century women during the American Civil War.
Ann was born in South Carolina (USA) and currently lives in Georgia (USA). Southern culture and heritage are a major part of her daily life.
