Annual Display of Confederate Constitution April 26

April 18, 2013 – 12:10 PM

The only surviving copy of the permanent Constitution of the Confederate States of America will be on display in the gallery of the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

An accompanying exhibit focuses on the year 1863 and features letters, diaries and publications from that year.

Due to its fragility, the document is displayed only one day a year — on Confederate Memorial Day.
