Description

Depicts three women sitting in a crowded bedchamber, engaged in the entire process of making clothing. On the far left, a woman wearing a bonnet spins the raw material into thread. The thread is then woven into cloth by the woman working the loom. On the right, a woman sews the finished pieces into garments for Confederate soldiers. The scene is a quiet, domestic one, designed to convey the patriotism and sacrifice considered appropriate and desirable for Southern women.
