West Side Students Enjoy Freedom Quilt Presentation

Mrs. Betsy Slaughter of Fairfield Bay showed the  6th Grade students at West Side School a sampler Freedom Quilt which she personally handmade.
As they observed the artwork, she told the stories of how the quilts were used by slaves to help guide them to freedom during the days of African American slavery before the Civil War.
The students are studying slavery and the American Civil War in Mrs. Jewel James’ Social Studies class.
