African American Civil War Museum Reopens in Washington

The African American Civil War Museum has re-opened in Washington with a Ribbon Cutting and Dedication Ceremony held on July 18.

The New location is 1925 Vermont Avenue NW, directly across from the African American Civil War Monument. The new location of the museum has over $5 million of modern, highly educational exhibitions, which highlights the story of the African American Soldiers during the American Civil War.

The New Museum location also contains a media center and a research area for descendents and scholars. The African American Civil War Monument and the new museum site has added greatly to the master narrative about Civil War slavery and justice by injecting primary information on the heroic role of blacks in helping Lincoln to win the war, keep America united under one flag.

Between 2011 and 2015, the African American Civil War Memorial Museum is putting together a series of programs on the American Civil War from the start of the war; emancipation; to the end of the war; and post war situations of the newly freed slaves.
