„Civil War Sewing Kit“

from the gallery of Susan Savad

This Civil War sewing kit was called a "soldier's housewife" because, although at that time in history sewing was normally done by women, a soldier was expected to keep his own uniform mended. This kit would typically contain needles, pins, safety pins and cloth patches.
