This pocket New Testament was recovered from the Mine Creek Civil War Battlefield in Linn County during a 1990 survey by Kansas Historical Society archeologists. At the Mine Creek site, on October 25, 1864, Union and Confederate forces fought one of the largest cavalry battles in the Civil War. In 1989, the 125th anniversary of the battle, reenactors camped at the site, and this pocket bible was left behind. Inside its front cover is the inscription, "To my beloved husband on the occasion of 15 years of marriage. November 1989."

Date: 1989
