Civil War Soldier's Quilts

Civil War Soldier's Quilts

Quilts made for use by soldiers during the Civil War are very rare — only twenty are known to exist, and Pam Weeks has studied most of them in person. This illustrated lecture outlines the origins of the U.S. Sanitary Commission at the beginning of the Civil War and examines the roles women played on the home front, and as nurses. The stories of fourteen actual Civil War soldiers' quilts will be highlighted in this program.

Presenter Pamela Weeks is the Binney Family Curator of the New England Quilt Museum. Author of the book Civil War Quilts and articles on quilt history, she lectures nationally on quilt-making and quilt history.

This program is sponsored by The Friends of the Library of Hudson, NH, and by a grant from New Hampshire Humanities.
