Included in museum admission Included in museum admission

We’re excited to announce the first annual History Explorer Day for children at the American Civil War Museum!

Mark the Bicentennial year of Ulysses S. Grant’s birth. If he were still with us today, U. S. Grant would be 200 years old this year! ACWM History Explorers will learn what it meant to be this general and a family man during the unprecedented events of the American Civil War.

Activities for History Explorers include making a book of Grant’s experiences and finding Grant’s horses! 

At Historic Tredegar – Meet Erik Curren, a living historian who will give two presentations as Ulysses S. Grant. With stories to tell and ready-to-answer questions from our young History Explorers, you can also grab a selfie or two with “General Grant”! 
“Meet Gen. Grant” programs are at 11 am and 1 pm, at ACWM Tredegar

At ACWM Appomattox – History Explorers can enjoy a mini Grant Film Festival! In exhibits at both ACWM sites, walk through the Civil War with Gen. Grant, from his start as General, to his historic finish!

Bring your explorer and find yourself in history at The American Civil War Museum!
