Lecture: The History and Mystery of Baltimore Album Quilts
The history of Baltimore Album quilts is a fascinating journey into an America headed for the Civil War. Discover how the industrial revolution, the struggle over slavery, and the social and moral climate of the time contributed to this beautiful art form. Through stories, we will explore how the demise of Baltimore Album quilts leads us into the hearts and minds of the women who made them, and how this delightful mystery connects us with our sisters of long ago.
