An American Turning Point: The Civil War in Virginia
From 1861 to 1865, Virginia stood at the center of a military and social revolution. How we define freedom, liberty, patriotism, and nation today is directly related to the diverse experiences of the individuals who participated in the Civil War.
This program will present highlights of the "An American Turning Point: The Civil War in Virginia" exhibition. Using original objects, interactive technology, and state-of-the-art audiovisual programs, this exhibition relates the personal experiences of the free and enslaved men, women, and children of wartime Virginia.
During the course of the program, the audience will be encouraged to consider what was lost, what was gained, what was decided, what was left uncertain, and how an event that occurred 150 years ago still influences us today. The audience will also examine specific individuals and situations to promote a better understanding of the wartime experiences of Virginians and those who served in Virginia during the war.
