American Civil War Center at Historic Tredegar
The American Civil War Center at Historic Tredegar, on the banks of the James River in Richmond, Virginia, is the gateway to Civil War travel in the region. A National Historic Landmark and one-time heart of Confederate war production, the Center is now home to the main visitor center of the NPS Richmond National Battlefield Park and a new exhibit, “In the Cause of Liberty,” which provides a national overview of the Civil War. The site offers visitors and students an engaging and interactive exploration of the Civil War on both the local and national levels through the perspectives of Union, Confederate, and African American participants. The Center is a must stop for the Civil War traveler. For more information please call or visit us online.
