  • Images of the New-York Historical Society’s Homefront & Battlefield show about US Civil War quilts and their context. Included in the extensive show is a KKK hood, the noose that killed abolitionist John Brown, and the 19th-century Reconciliation quilt from Brooklyn, which was the most expensive quilt ever sold at auction when it was hammered at Sotheby’s in 1991 for $264,000.
