Civil War Women. Their Quilts, Their Roles & Activities for Re-Enactors by Barbara Brackman

Published 2010

Hands-on projects adapted from nineteenth-century quilts are combined with fascinating historical accounts of the period, giving this unusual book its widespread appeal among readers of many interest groups.

The Civil War experiences of nine women are profiled-from abolitionist speaker Lucy Stone to freed slave Susie Taylor King to Confederate spy Belle Edmondson. Each woman is matched to a quilt that she might have made herself, as featured in nine projects, each with complete patterns and instructions.
