Needlepoint History

The Sherman House Museum in Lancaster, Ohio features all sorts of mementos based on the family of the Civil War General William Tecumseh Sherman, including needlepoint done by his mother, Mary Hoyt Sherman.  General Sherman was born in 1820 and died in 1891, so this is likely mid-Victorian in style.   I can't find any photographs online but if you are in the area, you might want to check it out.
