Want to become a collector of Civil War photos or documents, or other historical items?
"'A lot of people have things in their attics and trunks,' said Dick Buchanan. 'They just don't understand the value.'"

If you uncover something you think might be of value, or if you don't find anything in the attic and you want to seek items outside the home, Buchanan suggests finding a reputable dealer.

"The more than 200 items — furniture, clothing, etc. — in the exhibition illustrate three aspects of Shaker design: clean, crisp lines; an integrated design philosophy; and, yes, the occasional hit of color, some of it quite vibrant.

Gather Up the Fragments originated at Hancock Shaker Village in Pittsfield, Mass; the objects are drawn from a collection started by Faith and Edward Andrews in the 1920s. Though the Andrews were not the first outsiders to appreciate the simple beauty of Shaker furniture and other work, they were among the first to begin collecting and cataloging the objects."
