American Freedom Train

Following WW2 and in 1977, the USA sent a train across the USA with items and documents of Freedom-a very brief thumbnail sketch of it.

One of the former guards, John Rowe and his wife in 2004 had asked me to make them wallhanging of it's emblem for their reunion, or was it 2003. Anyway, John later asked me to make one for them. Not for free either one, but I gave the quilts to them. The first one because I was tickled to have a small part of that history, and the second to them as a gift.

The one for John and MaryJane Rowe is now hanging in the Freedom Train exhibit at Mott's Military Museum in Groveport OH (Columbus).

Needless to say, I'm so psyched about it. Something I made is on display at a museum!
