the National Museum of American History webpage. I'm posting it over here in the civilian discussion area because I think it will be better received here.

Stunning example of silk embroidery of the era done by a sailor during the late 19th century.

Thanks for posting that! It's an amazing piece of work!

It's too bad the Museum is closing Tuesday for almost two years of renovations. The Price of Freedom/Americans at War exhibit has a very well-done section on the Civil War that I was lucky enough to see during an impromptu visit a while ago. I had hoped to go back... now there are only two days left... :(
