Object of the Month
Longfellow House - Washington's Headquarters National Historic Site has a large museum collection consisting of thousands of objects, many of which are not regularly displayed in the house's furnished exhibit rooms. Every month, an object will be featured on this page, providing a look at an unusual piece from the collection.
Dear friend – for are you not the friend of us all – I thought it would not be a-miss to send “From the Land of the Dakota’s, from the Land of Handsome women,” a miniature pair of moccasins such as Minnehaha wears. They were made by a Dakota woman whose name is “White Dog.” May you still see many happy Birthday anniversaries on earth – and all your days be blessed ones.
