Turning to the Bible in times of danger has long been a source of comfort. Starting with the American Civil War, pocket copies of the New Testament or the entire Bible were regularly distributed to both Union and Confederate soldiers, with the American Bible Society assuming the leading role. Surviving copies of these Scriptures bear testimony to their use and tell compelling stories of hardship and faith. This exhibition brings together a large number of “Soldiers’ Bibles” that document individual lives within the tragic context of war. Tickets for Seniors and Students $4.00.
