Located on a rolling hill, the museum could be part of a Civil War battle site. The broad entrance hints of Southern Mansion meets Northern brick construction. Inside, the staff are inviting and very helpful regarding the museum. Laid out in sweeping displays across 2 floors, the museum covers the breadth of the whole Civil War. From first shot to final surrender. There are lots of artifacts and relics to view, along with uniforms of the period. The displays touch on the human experience through personal diaries and items carried by the soldiers. There are also videos that define the time and place of each phase of the war. The path carries you along like a river as you explore this part of American history. The museum wasn't crowded, so we proceeded at quick pace. The grounds are also nice to visit though there isn't much in close proximity to the museum. This is a great place for history buffs and those interested in the artifacts of the Civil War.
