Confederate Constitution display

February 27, 2014 – 2:46 PM

The only surviving copy of the permanent Constitution of the Confederate States of America — a part of the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library collections — will be displayed April 25 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Richard B. Russell Special Collections Libraries, 300 S. Hull St.

Due to its fragility it is displayed only one day a year, in conjunction with Confederate Memorial Day.  Since the observance falls on a Saturday (4/26) this year, the decision was made to exhibit the document a day early.

A complementary exhibition of Civil War materials, including letters, diaries, photos and artifacts, from 1864 will be on view through July.
