WC CWRT Program - Jennie Wade



Event Type(s): Education, Arts / Theatre / Music
Organization: Wayne County Civil War Roundtable
Description: Wayne County Civil War Roundtable Program, free and open to the public in the Wooster Branch of the Wayne County Public Libraries.
Raylene Hlavaty from Jeromesville, OH, will be presenting Jennie Wade who was the only civilian killed during the Battle of Gettysburg. Jennie Wade sacrificed her life for the union without ever putting on a uniform. She steadfastly kept to her baking to provide bread for hungry soldiers in the midst of bullets and cannon shells when she found herself on the dividing line between union and confederate forces in July 1863. As she was mixing more dough for biscuits, a stray bullet came through the outer door and pierced her heart.
Raylene graduated from Triway in 1988 and Ohio State in 1992 with a B.A. in English. She became interested in history after college when she viewed a video of David Barton recounting the story of the bullet holes left in George Washington's coat after the Battle of Monongahela in the French and Indian War. Since then, she has been busy searching out the workings of God in history.
Raylene presents several different historical characters! She is married to Mike Hlavaty and is a retired homeschool mom. We are honored to have her presenting at our CWRT!
