National Civil War Museum

It is the mission of the National Civil War Museum to serve as a national center to inspire lifelong learning of the American Civil War through the preservation and balanced presentation of the American peoples struggles for survival and healing. As President Lincoln's Gettysburg Address encompassed the emotions of the American struggle, the National Civil War Museum portrays this struggle as a time line, from the issues straining the nation through the war's conclusion at Appomattox Court House. First opened in 2001, the National Civil War Museum now incorporates collections of artifacts, manuscripts, documents, photographs, and other printed matter that exceed 24,000 items.
