The Civil War Diary Quilt, more blocks

#83, Soldiers Ladies Aid Society
June 7, 1861

Rebecca Loraine Richmond: "Pleasant. Spent a portion of the forenoon and afternoon at the hall with a few ladies, staying on till the last article for the soldiers was finished. The work accomplished by the ladies at the Hall is as follows, a large quantity of lint and bandages, nine hundred harelocks, white linen coverings for the cap furnished with a cape for protection against the sun, eight hundred housewives, little bags containing sewing apparatus, such as needle book, pincushion, thread, buttons etc, twenty hospital shirts, and a number of bed ticks for the use of the soldiers while quartered in our city...."
