There is now a museum with items from other conflicts with special attention to WWII soldier Audie Murphy, but also Vietnam, WWI, Iraq, etc.

The museum is located at Hill College, Hillsboro, Hill County, Texas and is on top of a hill overlooking I-35. There is a large outlet mall at the bottom of the hill where your spouse can be happy to let you pass hours in the research library looking at things like original CSA battle flags, letters from soldiers, and so forth.
