Add to Calendar 04-04-2014 24-08-2014 15 Homefront & Battlefield: Quilts & Context in the Civil War To mark the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, the New-York Historical Society presents the groundbreaking traveling exhibition, Homefront & Battlefield: Quilts & Context in the Civil War, organized by the American Textile History Museum. The exhibition uses quilts, textiles, clothing, and other artifacts to connect deeply moving and insightful personal stories about the war, its causes, and its aftermath with the broader national context and public history. Textiles were integral to the Civil War�physically, economically, ideologically, and emotionally�and linked soldiers and civilians. Among the exhibition highlights on view at New-York Historical is a large-scale silk banner for the 39th Regiment New York State Veteran Volunteers (ca. 1861). Through a wealth of artifacts drawn from around the nation, the exhibition will invite visitors to see and acknowledge the human experiences beneath the veneer of Blue and Gray. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=164391 DiMenna Children's History Museum at New-York Historical Society true DD/MM/YYYY
