TELL THIS STORY: : Known as the "Housewife" was a sewing kit usually handmade by a loved one for the Civil War soldier. Most were very simply made with cotton fabrics. Soldiers carried them in a haversack or rolled in their cot quilt. It was an important item since soldiers had to do their own mending of shirts, socks, uniforms and even stitch their own wounds.
