As the nation was divided, women of the North and South made utilitarian quilts for soldiers. In addition, many created commemorative quilts recounting the lives of Civil War heroes and major events of the war. Drawing from actual diary entries and Civil War quilt blocks, Art Historian Susan Olds presents a visual account of the amazing quilts and the women who created them. A list of recommended books, web site links and DVDs will be provided.
