The exhibit "highlights a broad range of textile artifacts and other objects to explore the Civil War. Textiles from collections across the United States, including quilts from Shelburne Museum, tell the political, economic and social histories of the Civil War through fabric and cloth."
You may have viewed the show in New York (above at the New York Historical Society) or
at the American Textile History Museum in Massachusetts but the Shelburne will be adding quilts from their collection, so this venue is worth another view.
