Quilted History Comes Alive at the April Meeting

Carolyn Willaims gave a dynamic presentation at the April 13, 2015 meeting of the Preservation Society.  The Director/Archivist of the Quilted History program here in Union County brought a number of items including a family slavery document and handmade quilts.  She discussed her family's history as both slaves and freed men and women here in Union County and their home in the Ebenezer/New London/Strong region of the county.  We appreciate Ms. Williams sharing her family's history and exhibiting her personal collection of artifacts at the Preservation Society.
