Drum Makers' Ball, 1860 and 1863

Description

Flyers for the Drum Makers' Ball, 31 Dec 1860 and 01 Jan 1863. The 1860 event was only months before the beginning of the Civil War. The 1863 event occurred on the day the Emancipation Proclamation went into effect. The Civil War would continue for over 2 more years, ending in 1865.

The Drum Makers' Ball ticket cost of $2.00 was quite substantial at that time.
