Progress on Civil War Center in Richmond: Looks like the interpretive element of this museum will be broad in perspective and reflect the best in more recent Civil War studies.
In addition to exhibits, The American Civil War Center is developing a series of educational programs for school children that are tied to the Standards of Learning. Sara Poore, the center’s educational director, said some of the programs already are being presented in area schools. One of them, “Carpetbaggers, Scalawags and Jim Crow” examines the Reconstruction era after the Civil War, and some of the abuses that occurred during the period.
This is indeed a good sign.
