The Myth Of the Quilt
Excellent must-read post over at Farm School on history, historical fiction, and how wanting to believe something is true because it's a good story ... well, wanting to believe doesn't make it true. And, actually, disinformation is insulting to those you are trying to honor. The amount of misinformation on quilts and the role they played in the Underground Railroad is staggering.
