barbaras artist statement sarah's core

This quilt is a scene showing Abraham Lincoln's assassination. When he died, it brought a lot of sadness and sorrow to the country that he served with great honor. He was a magnificent man and didn't deserve to get shot by a man named John Wilkes on April 15th 1865 at 7:22 in the morning. Abraham Lincoln had a totally different view on slavery than anyone else. But in a good way, he had a good view, a great view, a fantastic view! His view was so marvelous that he brought even more peace and respect between blacks and whites. He has earned way more than just a spot on this quilt because slavery was the main key durring the Civil War. And he was the main key to stopping slavery and discrimination. If only he had lived till old age, for he would have made an unforgettable and overpowering difference in America.
In the words of Abraham Lincoln,
"All men and women are created equal."

Thank You,
Natalie Grey
