Thisquilt has the dates and number of know casualties the US incurred sincethe Civil War. It actually took longer to research than to make the quilt. This quilt was made for a fundraiser and was signed by Charlie Daniels during the tribute that our town held to honor our local military after 9/11. The gentleman who won it put it up for sale last year and my husband bought it back for me and wedecided to put it in permanent display at our local American Legion Post 47 in Waynesville, North Carolina. The quilt gave me a lot of pride to make and raised a lot of money that was used to help the families of soldiers that were serving overseas. Sometimes you get moreout of your project than anyone that receives it and in this case it istrue.” — Audrey Moody
