Exhibits narrate the war experience from each perspective, and commentary from preeminent scholars helps to examine the intricate relationships, the causes of the war and its legacies. A National Historic Landmark and one-time heart of Confederate war production, the Center is also the location of the main visitor center of the NPS Richmond National Battlefield Park.
