Civil War Quilts and Stories

Record date: Feb 19, 2013

Pat Ehrenberg, a quilter from Ripon, WI, shares the stories behind the quilts that were sewn during the Civil War and distributed to the soldiers on the battlefields. Quilts that were made for the soldiers were a different size and shape than what most quilters would have made for their homes and they were made out of unusual fabrics due to a shortage of material during the war.
