The University of Georgia and the Civil War, pt. 1
Recently we took a trip back to our home state of Georiga. While there we made a stop at our alma mater, The University of Georgia. Sadly, I was unaware of UGAs ties to the Civil War while I was in attendance. However, now thanks to “The Reenactors” my new interest in Civil War history has me looking everywhere for connections.
Did you know that the Confederate States Constitution is housed at the Main library on North Campus? It is held in the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library on the third floor. Just don’t show up hoping to see it. We were informed that it is only displayed once a year on Confederate Memorial day. It is said to be 3 feet wide by 12 feet long and it takes 2 very large wooden display cases to show it!
