LITTLE WOMEN PAPER DOLLS
Blockading the southern sea ports was an effective Union strategy. It was thought with few manufacturing sites in the south, they would soon surrender. However, Southern women took great pride in sacrificing for the war effort. They knitted shoes, and recycled soles from worn out uppers by placing them in warm water to make them more pliable, removed the old stitching, sewed them on to new knitted uppers, and decorated them with embroidered flowers.
