Metropolitan Fair recalls the Civil War ladies’ fairs that raised
millions of dollars for Union and Confederate soldiers’ hospitals.
The largest extravaganza was New York City’s Metropolitan Fair
held in Union Square in 1864. Women from the Carolinas to Cali-
fornia orchestrated fundraisers to sell needlework and handmade
items at tables staffed by volunteer sales clerks permitted to be
quite flirtatious for the cause. The prints in Metropolitan Fair recall
calicoes and dress goods of the war years. Each print is named
for an exhibit.
