This Just In From The Museum Of The Confederacy


Dear Members,

On behalf of the Board of Trustees and staff of the Museum of the Confederacy, we are pleased to announce the official groundbreaking for the Museum in Appomattox on September 23, 2010 at 3:00pm. The projected opening of the Museum is slated for Spring 2012.

The grounds of the Museum will be 8 acres, with an 11,000 square foot building, providing ample interior and exterior space for visitors, programming and exhibits.

The Focus of the main exhibit at the Museum of the Confederacy - Appomattox will be the events which led to the end of the war and the reunification of the nation. The museum in Appomattox will be the final stop for the Virginia Sesquicentennial Commission's traveling exhibit - An American Turning Point in 2015.

This is an exciting time for the Museum and its members and we look forward to sharing more information as construction gets underway. Look for the latest issue of the Museum of the Confederacy Magazine which should arrive in your mailbox soon and is filled with information about the new site.

Sincerely,

Diane Willard
Director of Membership and Annual Giving
