To study coins and medals from more recent history, consider visiting
the Civil War Money & Memorabilia Showcase™ at next month's PAN show near Pittsburgh.
The Inaugural Civil War Money & Memorabilia Showcase™ welcomes
The Woman's Relief Corps.
The nationally chartered Auxiliary of the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) served Union Veterans, their Families and Caregivers for Generations…..
At their National Museum in Springfield, IL, they are Curators of Civil War Currency, Medals and Memorabilia.
A Special Ten Minute Talk by Rebecca Rush, National Board member of the Women's Relief Corps (WRC), will be announced for Friday and Saturday at the Pennsylvania Association of Numismatists (PAN) Coin Show May 19-21, 2022.
The Civil War Showcase is pleased to announce that the Women's Relief Corps (WRC) will be participating in the upcoming PAN Coin Show May 19-to-May 21. The WRC maintains a Museum in Springfield, IL, which is home to a wide collection of Civil War and GAR related memorabilia – including, surprisingly, Confederate and Southern States currency, which no doubt came home as souvenirs of the War.
It is amazing what treasures reside in small museums – like in Washington County, Maryland, too. Confederate currency made its way to the northern states both as battles were fought or as Union soldiers returned home with souvenirs of Southern money, said Becky Rush, one of the CW Showcase organizers.
We are working with the WRC on a poster-display of currency, medals and other memorabilia that will blend well with the other displays dealing with the Women's Relief activities and Sanitary Fairs. Richard Crosby (PAN) is going to be one of the exhibitors and has an extensive collection of badges and medals from those successful Union fundraising fairs. Ms. Rush will be giving a couple of
Talks in Ten about the Women's Relief Corps and the Sanitary Fairs on Friday and Saturday, times will be announced before the PAN Coin Show.
