New Civil War exhibit opens at Old State House Museum

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The Old State House Museum hosts its second exhibit to commemorate the sesquicentennial of the Civil War from May 5, 2012, to February 1, 2013. The exhibit, Battle Colors of Arkansas, will help visitors understand Arkansas's place in the American Civil War.

The Old State House Museum maintains a large collection of Arkansas-related Civil War artifacts, Blue and Gray. At the forefront is the museum's collection of Civil War battle flags; these flags will command attention in the Battle Colors of Arkansas exhibit. Not all of the museum's flags can be displayed because despite the best efforts of textile conservators, the flags remain extremely fragile. The effect of light on the flags is especially damaging, so exposure is severely limited. The Old State House Museum's inclusion of eighteen flags in this exhibit is uncommon.

Pay it Forward: Operation Beautiful

In February, we started a Pay it Forward mission on 'Today's THV This Morning.' From doughnuts, to gas cards, to paying for people's coffee--it was a movement that took off!

We had several THV viewers write in and share their stories with us about how they too gave back. Whether it was a just kind word or paying for someone's groceries, the message spread. We walked away from each of those experiences feeling inspired and thankful.

A few months ago, THV's Ashley Blackstone walked in the restroom at the west Little Rock Target and saw a note taped to the mirror with two simple words... "You're Beautiful!"

She did some googling and found Operation Beautiful. This nationwide movement is to post anonymous notes in public places for other people to find. The point is that WE ARE ALL BEAUTIFUL.

You are enough... just the way you are!
