Virginia Educators! ACWM is hosting an Educator Open House and Professional Development Session at BOTH of our locations in Richmond and Appomattox on July 25th! Teachers may attend whichever location of their choosing! This event is designed to bring our Teacher Advisory Council members and all interested educators together in person and to give us the opportunity to showcase new and existing museum resources. We hope to see you there!

At Appomattox, attendees will be shown the documentary “Shifting the Lens”, which details the process that went into creating the “A People’s Contest: America’s Civil War & Emancipation” film experience.

Following the film, we will facilitate a Professional Development session on the efficacy of various 19th-century media technologies on public opinion during the Civil War era, pointing to artifacts in the exhibit and in our collections.
