Such a sad time in our history revisited by historians in this tour. We enjoyed the film presentation as well as the museum. Great place for families to experience history.

This is a most moving statue when you know the history of it. Take time to explore the entire area when visiting this monument.

Learned a little about the history of Fredericksburg, Virginia and our Nations battles. How the battles have shaped our country as for what we are today.

We've got an AWESOME one in Lee Circle in New Orleans, but it's about to be destroyed because of idiots. BUT... Informative, great for history buffs and nice to know something will stay even though the PC Police is trying to destroy American History.

expensive but informative and at times a little cheesy attempt to present the southern rebellion from a soldiers viewpoint and in general worth a visit for a novice civil war enthusiast, though those well versed will be a bit disappointed , make sure to take...More

Like the other reviewer said, this storefront museum was once located here but looking around could not find. Was doing a day trip of civil war sites in the Spotsylvania and Fredericksburg area and was frustrated not being able to find. Visited the pickets post...More
