The Civil War Love Letter Quilt is a history book, quilting guide, and touching tale of the love shared by Civil War soldiers, their sweethearts and families. In the same innovative approach as other books of the popular letter and diary quilt-book series by Rosemary Youngs, this new guide showcases 121 different paper pieced block patterns with the actual letter that inspired them.
The collection includes love letters from:
- President Rutherford B. Hayes to his family
- Newton Scott to his childhood friend, whom he married upon returning from the war
- David Winn, a soldier who ultimately gave his life for his country
