ACWM Responds to Our Community in Crisis

We are heartbroken. We mourn the loss of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and the countless other victims of racial violence.

This violence has roots in the history of the Civil War era. So is reason for hope. At the American Civil War Museum, we seek to understand and illuminate this past, and how it lives on in our present.

Over the next few weeks, we will offer resources and programs designed to aid with historical understanding, as well as opportunities to listen and learn from one another.

Help us do our part to bring healing to these 400-year-old wounds.
