I wanted to be sure to pass along some information for those of you that may be able to attend.
To mark the 150th anniversary of the Civil War (1861-1865), the New-York Historical Society presents a groundbreaking traveling exhibition, Homefront & Battlefield: Quilts & Context in the Civil War, organized by the American Textile History Museum. The exhibition uses quilts, textiles, clothing, and other artifacts to connect deeply moving and insightful personal stories about the war, its causes, and its aftermath with the broader national context and public history.

And my favorite Civil War reproduction. A quilt originally made by Jane Stickle 1869 "In War Time". This quilt was made by me.
