Historic Clothing Impressions

This gallery was created as a resource for the presentation “Clothes That Make History” given at the 2022 National Teacher Institute with American Battlefield Trust. These are impressions of clothing from the Revolutionary War, War of 1812, and American Civil War eras. They are IMPRESSIONS and not intended to be historically accurate. Crafted from thrift store finds and with fabric scissors, a stapler, and safety pins…it’s costuming for a classroom on a budget!
