The American Civil War Museum - Richmond
Monday, November 11, 2019 | 9:00am - 5:00pm
Come join us for a perfect Veterans Day excursion—a Civil War day-trip to Richmond, capital of the Confederacy. We’ll begin the day by taking in the fabulous American Civil War Museum at historic Tredegar Iron Works on the James River. The brand-new museum is the preeminent center for the exploration of our nation’s horrific Civil War from multiple perspectives: Union and Confederate, enslaved and free African Americans, soldiers and civilians. (Time permitting, we’ll walk through the NPS Civil War museum right next door.) Lunch time will find us at LuLu’s in nearby Shockoe Bottom, a wonderful eatery famous for its American fare, served up exceptionally well. After lunch, we’ll tour Hollywood Cemetery, Richmond’s famous garden cemetery. Please give us lunch choice from selection. Activity Level – ActiveOpen to all.
