Little else sits as entrenched in the collective American history as the history of the Civil War. The history of the American South and its role in the greater United States is rooted in this war, and its fascinating history. The Confederate Memorial Museum is dedicated to collecting, preserving, interpreting, and exhibiting authentic historical material of the Civil War. In an ongoing effort to maintain egalitarianism and diplomacy, the Confederate Memorial Museum presents its information in a non-ideological way, instead educating and entertaining visitors with the stories of courage, valor, courage and patriotism that these soldiers maintained. Artifacts include weapons, flags, uniforms, and introspections into the daily lives of the Confederate soldiers and the organization of the southern confederate as a whole.
