Civil War Era Quilts

     The main uses for quilts outside the home during the Civil War Era were for warm bedding, for shrouds to bury the dead, and to auction to raise money for the Sanitary Commission. Women wanted to help with the war effort and by making quilts they found satisfaction and their collective effort gave them camaraderie with other women with the same worries about the nation.
