This is a must see documentary that a local historical society in Belfast, Maine, made about a flag quilt that returned home very unexpectedly after 147 years! It is almost an hour long and FASCINATING! Click here to see the video.
Given that so few quilts survived the civil War, it is all the more amazing that this quilt was returned to the town in which it was made. The quilt is full of signatures, sayings and puns. Well worth curling up with a good cup of coffee or tea to watch or listen, in spite of its length. AQSG member Pam Weeks gives almost half of the lecture while Megan Pinette, President, Belfast Historical Society, presents the 2nd half. There is one exciting break through in research after another! Enjoy!
