Anna Rolapp designed the Remembrance and Reconciliation quilts. On the “eastern” (right} border are the green hills of Arkansas; on the “western (left) border are the red hills of southern Utah. The vines on the borders have a leaf for each of the 120 victims of the massacre. The leaves are organized in family groupings. The seventeen surviving children are represented by appliqued flowers. Occupying the center are 48 squares contributed by a nearly equal number of descendants of both victims and perpetrators. The intent was for the families of victims to memorialize their slain ancestors while families of perpetrators could express their profound sorrow There are two quilts. One in Carroll County Historical and Genealogical Society in Berryville, Arkansas. The second Quilt is in the Pioneer Courthouse in St. George, Utah. Come see the beautiful quilt and hear this amazing story by the creator - Anna Rolapp.
