Sisters of Mercy artifacts uncovered in Arkansas

This is an interesting article talking about artifacts that were found on the grounds of Immaculate Conception church in Fort Smith, Arkansas. The artifacts belonged to the Sister's of Mercy who occupied the grounds from 1853 when five Sisters of Mercy came to Arkansas from Ireland until 2001. The article also talks about the Sister's role in caring for wounded soldiers, both Union and Confederate, during the civil war.

‘Landscaping’ yields wealth of artifacts from Mercy Sisters
