In partnership with the Community Idea Station/WCVE, the Museum is excited to host a premiere screening of How the Welsh Changed the World: The Tale of Two Tredegars, a Welsh documentary which chronicles the parallel history of the two sites, the town of Tredegar and its namesake here in Richmond (our very own ACWM site). The documentary will air for the general public on Thursday, April 26 at 10pm on WCVE. This is your chance to hear from the filmmakers, ask questions about the process, and see it first! Tickets to this exclusive screening will be open to ACWM and Community Idea Station members first, before the general public. Ticket price is $8 for members of the ACWM or WCVE/Community Idea Station, $10 for the general public, and includes beer, wine, and light hors d’oeuvres.
It's that time of year again...get your dancing shoes on for Loose Cannons VII. The Tredegar Society's annual fundraising party never disappoints. With views of the James River, food trucks, and a great band, you can't go wrong. The Blue Tips will bring classic soul and Motown favorites to the stage.
Drinks are included in the ticket price, and you can pay a little extra to participate in the musket firing (space is limited).
Join us for the seventh annual Loose Cannons event and help us raise money for the American Civil War Museum.
Hundreds of women fought in the Civil War dressed as men. Serving their country in disguise, their legacy was hidden from view. Uncover how their varied motivations and experiences can complicate how we understand our country’s history of gender and the military. With DeAnne Blanton, archivist at the National Archives and Records Administration.
After the lecture, DeAnne Blanton will participate in a panel discussion with Claire Gastanaga, ACLU of Virginia; Dr. Leisa Meyer, Diversity Richmond; and Dr. Francoise Bonnell, Director of the Army Women's Museum.
