This is a museum that is staffed by knowledgeable volunteers of the American Civil War. The museum is a mishmash of donations from the period. There is a library full of books on the subject.

Small private museum with very congenial guides and interesting artifacts. Interesting to learn (among other things) that the Civil War wasn't about slavery at all! Excellent experience was a bit marred by close-minded bias about all things southern.

We went at 11:00 am on a Saturday but they weren't open. I guess we should call ahead because it is staffed by volunteers? IDK.

We visited the museum today with our senior church group. I think my husband and I were the only Yankees there but it was still very interesting. If you are from the south or have relatives from the south I'm sure you would really learn...More
