National Civil War Chaplain’s Museum
Dedicated to the Memory of Civil War Chaplains
Founded in 2005, the National Civil War Chaplain’s Museum at Liberty University is distinctively unique. It’s the only museum in the nation that is solely dedicated to honoring the approximately 3,700 chaplains, priests, and rabbis who served during the Civil War.
The museum aims to educate the public about the role of chaplains and religious organizations during the Civil War. Additionally, the museum preserves religious artifacts from the war and presents programs that show the influence of religion on the lives of political and military personnel.
The museum features documentary films, displays, murals, a research library, and more. Educational programs and special events are held throughout the year.
