Banner Quilt Talk

When: Sat., Aug. 8, 1 p.m. 2015

New Findings on the History of the Banner Quilt, presented by Bob Libershal On August 8th beginning at 1pm, join us at the Clarke Museum for a presentation on the history of the historic Banner Quilt. This historic quilt was made by the Ladies’ Social Circle of Eureka in 1864 and auctioned off to raise funds for wounded Civil War soldiers. While the quilt was auctioned off, it in fact was presented to Ulysses S. Grant, the 18th President of the United States, as a gift. In 1991, Grant’s descendants donated the quilt to the Clarke Museum, and is currently on display. Come find out the new information uncovered by Mr. Liebershal.
