1861~American Civil War Series

"A human life, I think should be well rooted in some spot of a native land, where it may get the love of a tender kinship for the face of the earth, for the labors of men go forth to, for the sounds and accents that haunt it, for whatever will give that early home a familiar unmistakable difference amidst the future widening of knowledge. The best introduction to astronomy is to think of the nightly heavens as a little lot of stars belonging to one's own home ."

George Elliot

As long as I can remember I have had a love affair with America. I was one of the lucky ones to attend college as an adult. One of my first American History courses “The Lincoln Era,” was taught by one of the countries foremost Lincoln Historians. From that time on I focused my studies on the American Civil War era. I stumbled into rug hooking after seeing an old rug with the words Union hooked in the center. I wanted that rug! The rest of the story is history. I am continually sketching out rugs to represent that period. They are metaphors a statement, person, or event that I have read about.
