The nation's bloodiest conflict, including its causes, casualties and consequences, is documented with more than 24,000 artifacts, photographs, manuscripts and other printed materials. Popular exhibits include Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee's Bible inscribed in his hand: "R.E. Lee, City of Mexico, Sept. 1847," and found under his ransacked wagon four days before he surrendered in Appomattox, Va.; a leather glove worn by Confederate Gen. "Stonewall" Jackson; and a Union uniform belonging to Lt. Philo Hersey. Opened in 2001, the museum was founded by former Harrisburg mayor and Civil War buff, Stephen R. Reed.
