Museum and White House of the Confederacy
Civil War buffs flock to the Museum of the Confederacy, which
houses the most comprehensive collection of Confederate artefacts,
personal memorabilia and art to be found anywhere in the United
States. The exhibits include 550 battle flags, 215 uniforms,
including those of well-known officers, and 1,000 military buttons.
Art works on display include E.B.D. Julio's heroic painting, 'The
Last Meeting of Lee and Jackson'.
Beside the museum is the White House of the Confederacy, the
1818 mansion in which Confederate President Jefferson Davis and his
family lived during the Civil War. It is still furnished with
original items. Visitors have to join a tour to see the White
House. These depart regularly throughout the day.
