Civil War commemorative quilt, Macon, Georgia

The remarkable Civil War commemorative quilt created by school children in Macon, Georgia, has arrived. I thought it might have been made in the 70s, but it may be even younger than that. Possibly 80s or 90s. There are some names on the blocks. One of the names that jumped out was Ansley Morris- there can't be many people named Ansley Morris from Macon, Georgia. More research to follow. Here are some pictures. Enjoy!


  1. So wonderful! Hard to beat the honest simplicity of kid art. Love that you bought it!

  2. Love that carpet bagger!! Priceless
