Civil War blocks

Here are the latest Civil War blocks. Very fun to make.
The top one (block 29) is called "Railroad Crossing" The first battle of the Civil War was called "The Battle of Bull Run" (by the Union) or "The Battle of Mananas" (by the Confederates)
The Union lost and this railroad crossing was where the Orange and Mananas railroads crossed near the sight of the battle.
Block 30 is called "Peterson's Stars and Stripes" Peterson's Magazine had a colored drawing of the quilt, and is the first known colored block ever to be published. I appliqued the star in the middle of the stripes.
