I've never been much interested in the Civil War likely due to a typical American public school education. But, this book is fascinating and has blossomed an interest in the Civil War.

This book "quilts" (brings) together modern quilts made in memory of the Civil War, historical Civil War quilts, and the actual history of the Civil War with an emphasis on how the Civil War was experienced by women who sewed. Also, it includes 9 detailed instructions for making your own reproduction quilts.

I ended up upgrading my star rating from 3 to 4. Initially, I felt that the scholarship was lacking, but by the end of the book I was convinced that I was truly the work of an expert, on quilts if not on the Civil War itself.

Full of interesting stories--I especially liked the reproductions of original designs. Textiles are such a fragile craft and they disintegrate so easily even if well cared for.
