I visited the Civil War Chaplain’s Museum today and it really is a truly unique place. I enjoyed my time there. There was a diverse range of artifacts to look at. There was an 1860 original spencer riffle as well officers' swords on display yet they also had precious sun worn gospel tracts and hymnbooks that dated back all the way to the Civil War era. Something that stood out to me was the funky pair of glasses that the sharp shooters wore. Prior to seeing them on display I had no idea that the soldiers back then had anything to wear over their eyes to help them shoot more sharply. I also went into the museum completely naive to the fact that many of the chaplains during that time were Jewish. It's crazy that so much has changed in just over
