Having grown up in and around the site of the Battle of Atlanta, the traces of the troops’ movements influence how I think about the landscape. A stitched mapping of General Sherman’s 1867 assent into Georgia during the Civil War is a way to map this knowledge and personal history. This piece involves appliqué techniques as well as machine and hand stitching to create the epic terrain of the Northern Georgia mountain landscape.
