National Civil War Chaplains Museum open in Lynchburg





The mission of the National Civil War Chaplains Museum in Lynchburg is to educate the public about the role of chaplains, priests, rabbis and religious organizations in the Civil War.

The museum helps preserve religious artifacts and shows the influence religion had on the lives of political and military personnel.

With a number of paintings and other period artifacts, the Civil War Chaplains Museum has a lot of great things to display just not enough space to display it. The museum is currently housed in a 1,000 square foot room in the Arthur S. DeMoss Building at Liberty University. But plans are in the works to expand into a facility ten-times as a large.
