I'm a Civil War buff and love going to museums, homes, etc. representing this period. The gentleman who owns the collection is very knowledgeable. Primarily the collection is made up of weapons, but there were uniforms, daguerreotypes of many officers, election ballots, etc. He also has interesting artifacts available for purchase - Confederate bonds that were worthless after the war are worth a lot of money today. Really enjoyed my visit. There is a lot of downtown construction going on, so you may want to call for directions if you are staying at a hotel. While Google Maps has the directions, it all through the construction areas and the owner can get you there!
