A Confederate Bible

A Little Bit of Southern History

During some recent travels in the Washington, DC area, I made my way through Civil War country. One afternoon in September, I joined my friend Soren and his family and headed out to a re-enactment camp at the Mt. Zion Church. I was able to visit the old grave yard and church, but was also given a nice demonstration of some battle action. The kind folks of the re-enactment unit also gave us some lessons in old-time equipment, of which the medical tools seemed most interesting... and frightening! I did spot this curious item though: a Bible printed in and for the Confederacy, and I thought this would be a fine addition to the blog and for all my readers.
