Though people like Abraham Lincoln and Robert E. Lee are, to many, synonymous with the Civil War, their symbolic status is just a fraction of the story that shaped the modern United States. Join us to explore the War through the stories of the people who lived it, and how their lives changed during the War. What choices did people make then—and what choices do we make today that could impact the future? Uncover Civil War Richmond from Brown’s Island, encounter real people through replica artifacts, and get an exclusive look at the brand new American Civil War Museum at Historic Tredegar.
