A brief synopsis from IMDb: John Charles Fremont, the American adventurer, the free-spirited women who impelled him to dare undreamed-of-feats, and the young nation they helped to shape. The story begins in 1839 when Fremont is chosen to lead the trek into the Oregon Territory with the help of Kit Carson which gets under way in 1843. Fremont’s adventures include expeditions into California, a court-martial, acquisition and loss of great wealth, excursions into politics, involvement in the civil war, and eventual realization of the dream to move America westward. The gown measures about a 34″ bust; 25″ waist and the skirt is about 47 at its longest point. NOTE: The sheer material at the shoulders has frayed and needs repair. The lower skirt has some fraying in the ruching folds and the hem area needs a professional cleaning as it was definitely worn and walked in during production. I would recommend a Professional Cleaning, but overall for its age is in unbelievably beautiful condition!
