Civil War Bible

Well, this isn’t exactly a post documenting some historical event, but it is uplifting nonetheless.  It seems a book collector had a Bible from a New Jersey soldier and decided to return it to the family.  You can read about it here:  http://cbs3.com/local/Civil.War.Bible.2.994707.html  I say kudos to the book collector.  Sometimes the most valuable items we own aren’t valuable because of their dollar amount but because of the history behind them.  I actually own several Bibles carried by Civil War soldiers but would love to own one carried by one of my ancestors.  Let’s face it history on a personal level is the best history of all.
