Quilt commemorating Joseph W. Britton's Civil War service
Cotton quilt made to resemble a United States flag with one star on a blue field in the top left corner. Within the red and white stripes are dates and campaigns that document the Civil War service of Joseph W. Britton, a member of the 3rd Minnesota, Company E. A reproduction of his Civil War Corps badge is embroidered on the quilt. The pieced border is set on point and alternates stars and bars, and there is red cotton backing. It features diamond quilting with decorative Union shields on the border. Contained within the border stars are inked names and dates of the Hanse family members as the corps badge was passed down within the family.
