Richmonders at War Exhibit at ACWM

Opens September 2nd

@ ACWM - Historic Tredegar

“Richmonders at War,” an upcoming panel exhibition at the American Civil War Museum’s Historic Tredegar location, invites visitors to see these stories up close and in person. It goes beyond familiar stories of courageous suffering in defense of the Confederate national capital, and past tales of the famous men at the helm of the slaveholder’s republic. Instead, the exhibit interweaves the excitement of secession, the desperation of bread riots, the endurance of a city flooded with dead and wounded conscripts and refugees, and the despair of men and women sold as slaves up to the last days before liberation.
