This old building housed a lot of relics from the South. Including rifles, Swords of all types, uniforms, utensils,and other paraphernalia the officers and men carried into battle. A very worth while trip.

Only 10 dollars to get in, this is a great collection of items from the American civil war. Very interesting information, a great way to spend an hour or so.

As a longtime Civil War buff, I found this museum very useful in broadening my understanding of the war. I particularly enjoyed the adjoining displays of how the infantry, cavalry, and artillery soldiers were outfitted. Be aware that the museum's focus is somewhat limited, covering...More
