The new book Hidden Wounds, A Soldier's Burden shows the impact of the inner trials of returning service members on American families. Our ancestors did not have such a resource available. We can help today's military with this powerful message. Visit www.hiddenwoundsthebook.com for more details.

Through May 2012
The South Carolina Confederate Relic Room & Military Museum will open Through Fiery Trials: Religion in the Civil War; the second in a series of exhibits commemorating the war's sesquicentennial anniversary. An estimated
3,694 Union and Confederate chaplains served during the Civil War with about 150,000 Confederate conversions or baptisms during the war and a similar number of revivals on the Union side.

"Through Fiery Trials" will examine the experiences of chaplains, soldiers and citizens while challenging guests to assess the similarities in the role that religion played for both Northerners and Southerners during the War.
The exhibit will highlight Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish faiths and feature rare religious objects owned by some of the most storied figures from the war. Among the exhibit's items are bibles that belonged to generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson, a crucifix carried into battle by General George Pickett, vestments given to Bishop Patrick Lynch while serving in Europe as the official Confederate diplomat to the Vatican, a Jewish sweet meat bowl and a soldier's bible that was struck by a bullet.

Exhibit curator, Kristina Johnson, says that this exhibit will give museum visitors an opportunity to see up close some of the most personal religious items from Civil War soldiers and generals. Johnson anticipates that museum visitors will walk away from this exhibit with a different perspective on the role that religion played in the Civil War. "The role of religion in the Civil War is often overlooked but just as religion is a central part of our lives today, faith was key in sustaining men on the field, comforting women on the home front and healing a broken country struggling to rebuild itself." Through Fiery Trials: Religion in the Civil War will be on display through May 2012. Admission to the exhibit is included in general museum entry fees.

For more information, contact Kaela Harmon, Museum Advancement Coordinator at 803-737-8094 or kharmon@crr.sc.gov. Founded in 1896, the SC Confederate Relic Room and Military Museum is the oldest museum in the Columbia area.
The museum, located at 301 Gervais Street in Columbia, South Carolina, focuses on South Carolina’s military history from the Revolutionary War to the present War on Terror.

Through September 2012
The South Carolina Confederate Relic Room and Military Museum opens a new exhibit in honor of the sesquicentennial of the War Between the States. The exhibit shows that many of the earliest Civil War flags were hand crafted works of art and not only the Stars and Bars flag. Bold Banners: Early Civil War Flags of South Carolina will be exhibited through September 2012. The exhibit will display some of the earliest flags representing units from across South Carolina at the onset of the war. These flags of hand painted silk and embroidered wool are dyed in a rainbow of colors and evoke the spirits of determination, pride and patriotism of the men who carried them into battle. Early battle flags not only represented local pride and the Southern call to duty, but they also served a purpose on the battle field; allowing soldiers to quickly identify their units and to help rally troop movements.

Museum Curator of History, Kristina Johnson was responsible for much of the research of the exhibit and says she is looking forward to using this exhibit to share with the public the pride that South Carolina’s men displayed in their state as they went off for war. Designed to be as much of an art exhibit as a history exhibit, the South Carolina Confederate Relic Room & Military Museum looks forward to making Bold Banners our first major exhibit of the Civil War’s 150th anniversary.
