Treasure Chest Thursday: Civil War New Testament

My cousin Tony comes through again.  During the Civil War my 2xg-grandfather (Tony's 1xg-grandfather) George Hall (1845-1908) enlisted in the 26th Illinois Infantry Regiment in 1861 for a three year enlistment.  When that was up he re-enlisted for another three years in the Veterans service.

This was his copy of the New Testament he carried with him during his time of service.  Click on it to enlarge.
