A Union Apron


Apron
1855-59
Metropolitan Museum of Art
Gift of The Misses Faith and Delia Leavens, 1941
C.I.41.58.25

Here's another Union apron, this one in the collection of New York's Metropolitan Museum. We can't call it a Civil War apron as they attribute it to the late 1850s, before the war began.
