National Civil War Museum

<p>The National Civil War Museum offers a total variety of exhibits and activities that really will fascinate you. There are amazing photo-displays, perfectly detailed miniature battlefield re-enactments, examples of weaponry, surgical tools, uniforms and the actual living conditions of the time. Built only a few years ago, the facilities are well-kept and incredibly well-organized and the location of the museum is nothing short of majestic set in a park overlooking mountains to the north. As you approach the grounds, there is this powerful vision of one huge American flag surrounded by thousands of smaller blue and gray flags, representing the dead from both side of just one battle.</p>
