- It's the stuff historians dream of - an unknown cache of documents that answer long-asked questions and open new avenues of scholarship. The South Carolina Confederate Relic Room and Military Museum recently acquired such a treasure trove. Hundreds of documents reveal how the Confederate government financed its purchases, what it bought, from whom, how the goods got to the South, and more. – Kathryn Jorgensen, Civil War News
