In less than two years, people driving along the State Route 24 will see flags erected in front of an 11,700 square foot building that will symbolize the reunification of the nation.

 Today, Sept 23 at 3 pm a groundbreaking for the Museum of the Confederacy, Appomattox Branch,  will take place. This will lead the way to the construction of a museum that will house Civil War artifacts.

Defining the end moments of the War Between the States, the museum will have items such as General Robert E. Lee’s uniform and the pen he used during surrender negotiations with Gen. Ulysses Grant.

Waite Rawls, the Director of the Museum in Richmond said that the Appomattox branch of the museum will focus on the end of the War and the reunification of the nation. I can hardly wait to see it, can you?
