This episode features a discussion with Katherine from the Mourning Society of St. Louis about historical mourning, death culture and funeral customs. The Mourning Society of St. Louis is a civilian reenactment group that brings historical funerals to life as public educational events. The group hosts several events throughout the year and if you’re interested, you can find more information at mourningsociety.com or on social media. We were especially excited to learn more about the Mourning Society because they are the only reenactment group of their kind, located right here in the Riverlands. We hope you learn as much as we did!
