    Overview

    Join rangers and volunteers to explore quilting during the Civil War. Try your hand at sewing a quilt square. During the Civil War, women supported the war effort through sewing and knitting. Quilts were an effective way to recycle materials during war time shortages. A quilt could be sent to a loved one or donated to the US Sanitary Commission. Materials and instruction will be provided. Seating is limited; reservations are required.

    Registration begins March 1, 2020. To register contact Ranger Jana or Ranger Tracy at 301-662-3515 or email: mono_mail@nps.gov.
