Two Civil War Museums in Virginia Teaming Up

From the Nov. 18, 2013, Yahoo! News, AP. The Museum of the Confederacy and the American Civil War Center are joining forces to create a new war center in Richmond. Both are already located in Richmond, Virginia. The Museum of the Confederacy presents the Southern side of the war and the Civil War Center focuses on the lives of the Confederate and Union soldiers, freed and enslaved blacks and civilians. //// The new museum resulting in the combining will be located along the James River by the former Tredegar Ironworks which produced so much Confederate ordnance. Groundbreaking on the new facility is expected to take place in 2014. //// I like the idea, but am a bit worried about the Civil War Center dominating the new organization. In the past, they have really been anti-Confederate. //// Old Secesh
