From Library Journal
Brackman's second book on quilting and the Civil War (after Quilts from the Civil War) introduces the reader to nine women who lived in that era and for each includes quilt designs of the time that they might actually have stitched. Suggested activities for reenactors and an extensive bibliography of original source materials make this book of interest not only to quilters but also for American history and American studies collections in public libraries.
