Traditional Amish Church Doll
During the Revolutionary War, church dolls were made for little girls to carry and bring with them into church services. Dolls were given to young girls to keep them occupied during what could be day-long church services. The dolls were made entirely of cloth so that when they were dropped in church they would not make noise and disturb the service. Church dolls were revived during the Civil War as remembrances for those who went to fight and given as keepsakes to soldiers representing the loved ones they’d left behind.
