About this item

This sought-after exhibition catalogue uses quilts, textiles, clothing, and other artifacts to connect deeply moving and insightful personal stories about the Civil War, its causes, and its aftermath with the broader national context and public history, and examines how textiles were both an expression of and a motivating force behind American politics and culture during the Civil War. Written by Madelyn Shaw and Lynne Zacek Bassett, the catalogue accompanies a major exhibition at the New-York Historical Society, April 4 through August 24, 2014. Paperback, 231 Pages.
