Located just 20 minutes east of Lynchburg, the Museum of the Confederacy/Appomattox is the newest part of the MOC Museum System. This innovative facility features two exhibits that showcase the Museum’s unparalleled collection to tell the comprehensive stories of the Civil War. Drawing from a rich collection of artifacts and documents, the Museum of the Confederacy/Appomattox interweaves stories of the Confederate government, the military, civilians, and both enslaved & free African Americans. The main exhibition, ‘Appomattox’ details events leading up to, during, and following the war. Of special interest are General Lee’s sword and the frock coat he wore at Appomattox Court House for the 1865 surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia.
