THE CONSERVATION OF GEORGE WASHINGTON'S REVOLUTIONARY WAR CAMPAIGN MARQUEES

Fonda Ghiardi Thomsen, & Louise Cooley



7 CONCLUSIONS

It was felt the foregoing process was beneficial in stabilizing the two historic artifacts. The fabrics were much softer when treatment was completed. Decomposition products had been removed. The added backing supported the historic fabric and reduced the stress produced from hanging the fabrics on exhibit. The entire conservation process is reversible.
