Liberty's Military Events:

Liberty University is committed to serve our military student population in achieving their educational goals as well as providing an atmosphere of camaraderie and support for other unique needs. There are several upcoming events that we invite you to be a part of whether you are a current service member, veteran, military spouse or military dependent. 

National Civil War Chaplains Museum Grand Reopening

The National Civil War Chaplains Museum is pleased to announce its grand re-opening at its new site next to the Hancock Welcome Center on the campus of Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA.

The new site features a number of new exhibits and enhancements which will provide visitors with an insightful overview of the role of Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish chaplains and that of religion during the Civil War.  In addition, the museum addresses the role of the US Christian Commission in the war.  Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish chaplains, along with a Christian Commission delegate, will be on hand to talk with the public about their service to the soldiers of the Confederate and Union armies.  Period music will be provided by the well-known group, Riddle on the Harp.  Refreshments will be provided.
