Belle Boyd, a Civil War spy, will be enacted by Patty Cooper Nov. 4 at 7 p.m. at the Landes Arts Center on Mt. View Street in Petersburg.
This program is presented by the Grant County Arts Council Inc. and Community Sponsors Sons of Confederate Veterans, Camp 582, "McNeill's Rangers," and Pendleton Community Bank.
Admission is a donation. Part of the West Virginia Humanities Council's History Alive series, the program will feature Cooper in an authentic costume, in character as Belle Boyd. Questions may be asked of Boyd at the end of the presentation, after which Cooper comes out of character and takes questions about her research and experiences as an enactor.
Cooper also enacts "Mad" Anne Bailey, scout of the Colonial Virginia frontier.
