150th Anniversary of the Civil War...
Understanding Our Past,
Embracing Our Future.
As events are organized we will post the info here. Here is part of a message from the Chairman of the Virginia Sesquicentennial of the American Civil War Commission: "The Virginia Sesquicentennial of the American Civil War Commission was created for the purpose of planning for and commemorating a significant milestone in our state and national history, the 150th anniversary of Virginia's participation in the American Civil War. The sesquicentennial commemoration in Virginia is a comprehensive statewide initiative that began in 2009 with programs examining the causes of the Civil War, and continues through 2015."
