The Museum of the Confederacy's mission is to serve as the preeminent world center for the display, study, interpretation, commemoration, and preservation of the history and artifacts of the Confederate States of America.
The Museum of the Confederacy's rich collection of civilian and military Civil War artifacts relating to the Confederate States of America, as well as the post-war "Lost Cause" era, is a valuable resource for the study of the role of the Confederacy in the War and in our society today.
The Museum organizes and sponsors a variety of lectures and other special events and programs, inviting the public to join us in our exploration of American society in the 1800s. Please explore what's happening at the Museum for more information on our schedule of these activities and their content.
Also, a new publication in the Journal series, exploring a particular portion of the Museum's ever-growing collection in-depth, is published annually. These publications are available for purchase through our onsite store. The Museum also produces a semi-annual newsletter with articles taking on many topics and issues surrounding the period of the Confederacy and effects on our society today. A brief selection of some of these articles is available for your perusal under Articles above. Museum members can receive these publications free Join Today!
