Becky Wright of Mt. Pleasant, IA will return to GAHC for an encore
program featuring more details on her beloved Civil War quilt and the
man who made it, Union soldier and German immigrant Christian Staffinger,
who crafted it while recovering from battle wounds.


Becky was a sell-out presenter in June of 2011, and during that very program
she had the opportunity to meet descendents of Christian Staffinger right
here at GAHC!  It was history in the making!  She has since had the opportunity
to learn more and will share the newest details with us - don't miss it!
