Confederate Museum Fund
In July of 2009 the Sesquicentennial Society was created for the purpose of providing for the raising of funds to construct a new building on the grounds of Elm Springs which will provide office space for our employees but more importantly house The Confederate Museum.
This new museum will tell the true history of the South in its struggle for independence that began nearly 150 years ago, and it will be dedicated to fine men who served the Confederate armed forces. It will ensure visitors understand the real causes for which these men were willing to leave their homes and families, then to suffer deprivation of adequate food, clothing, shelter, and often inferior weapons and a lack of sufficient ammunition.
Please help your Compatriots in the SCV in this effort to build this new museum where the message will be the truth about the War Between the States, the historic circumstances leading up to hostilities, and the events that occurred immediately after the war ended. You may rest assured that the Confederate Museum will never fall victim to revisionist history and what is expedient and politically correct.
Total fund raising to date is nearing $200,000 and the SCV is committed to approving a design as soon as is reasonably possible, and a goal of breaking ground some time during 2011. This fund accepts donations from SCV members and non-members.
