The Museum of the Confederacy

Land at very friendly W24 airport to visit this museum. They can help with renting a car. The Keystone Flight of Central PA flew a 5 ship formation to Lynchburg to see Appomattox Court House and this museum in one day - it can easily be accomplished.

The Museum of the Confederacy-Appomattox is the newest part of the Museum System. This brand new facility features two exhibits that showcase the Museum’s unparalleled collection to tell the stories of the Civil War. The Museum is located at the intersection of US 460 and State Route 24—just down the road from the Appomattox Court House National Historical Park.

Drawing from a rich collection of artifacts and documents, The Museum of the Confederacy-Appomattox interweaves stories of the Confederate government, the military, civilians, and enslaved & free African Americans. The main exhibition, Appomattox, details events leading up to, during, and following the war. Of special interest are General Robert E. Lee's sword and the frock coat he wore at the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia to General Grant.

This is worth a stop. $10 entry fee, but if you go with 10 or more, they can provide a discount. I thought it was well worth it for the historical value. Again, you can see BOTH Appomattox AND this museum in the same day if you plan it right.
