HISTORIC TREDEGAR

Founded in 1837, the historic Tredegar Iron Works was one of the country’s largest industrial sites before the Civil War, and the largest in the Confederate States. During the war it produced cannon, railroad parts, and iron plating used on such ships as the C.S.S. Virginia and others. The 1861 Foundry houses the Museum’s visitor services desk, museum store, and our flagship exhibit, “In the Cause of Liberty,” which explores the causes, course, and legacies of the American Civil War. Please allot two hours for your Historic Tredegar visit. Parking is free with museum admission.

WHITE HOUSE & MUSEUM OF THE CONFEDERACY

Built in 1818, the White House of the Confederacy served as the executive mansion and home for Confederate President Jefferson Davis and his family from 1861 to 1865. Guided tours (45 minutes) explore the lives and activities of those who lived and worked in the home. Founded in 1890, the Museum of the Confederacy houses one of the world’s largest collections of Civil War artifacts, most of which were donated by veterans or their descendants. The main exhibit, “The Confederate Years,” provides timeline of the war and includes uniforms, weapons, flags, and personal items used by those who fought. Please allot two hours for the museum, and one hour for the White House tour. Free parking is available in the MCV Health Services deck on 12th Street.

AMERICAN CIVIL WAR MUSEUM - APPOMATTOX

Appomattox is one of a few place names that is not only shorthand for an historic event—the surrender of General R. E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia and the effective end of the Confederate States of America—but also a metaphor—for the end of the war, and for a new beginning as a reunified nation. The American Civil War Museum - Appomattox’s permanent exhibit explores these overlapping stories using more than 400 artifacts, photographs, and documents. Included in the exhibit is the uniform coat and sword that Robert E. Lee wore to the surrender, the Appomattox parole lists, and a dozen audiovisual stations that bring rich human stories to life. Please allot two hours for your Appomattox visit. Parking is free with museum admission.
