Te Civil War began on April 12, 1861, and it touched the life of almost every person living in the United States during that time. More than 600,000 lives were lost, and the battles led to the economic destruction of homes, farms and industries.Civil War diaries and letters described a woman’s or a soldier’s personal experiences in daily life activities, as well as the activities during the Civil  War. Letters and diaries were written from home, the battlefields, camps, hospitals and even prisons. Te letters and the diaries provided a firsthand account of the experiences during the Civil War. As you work on the quilt blocks in this book,  whether you complete a small project or make the entire quilt, you will learn about the different effects the Civil War had on those living during that era. Te diaries and letters are in the soldiers’ and women’s own words, with simple grammar and spelling errors sometimes corrected.
