Building a new history

For those of you in Brooklyn on this January day I would advise a trip to the Brooklyn Museum to see this new exhibition in the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art.
Entitled Healing The Wounds of War:The Brooklyn Sanitary Fair of 1864. The exhibition will showcase a brilliant of example of female stitchery, the extensive doll clothes trousseau of Eliza Lefferts; for sale to aid the sanitary conditions in the wars hospitals.
