The Cold War Patriots Quilt Project

Remembering the Cold War Patriots

The American Flag is a symbol of freedom and sacrifice by those before us.  This one-of-a-kind exhibit honors those individuals working on the home-front to preserve our safety and way of life . It shows how a determined nation (civilian and military) worked together to change the course of history. Let your museum patrons explore a time in history kept secret for so many years, but is now unlocked to learn about average men and women who made a difference!

After an opening exhibit at the National Quilt Museum, the quilt display traveled to Nevada where it was showcased during the dedication at the Atomic Testing Museum, a National Museum and Smithsonian Affiliate.
