June 7-8, 10AM-4PM: The Civil
War History Mobile will be at the Graffiti House on Friday June 7 and
Saturday June 8 from 10-4 each day. This expandable 53-foot tractor
trailer contains a high-tech immersive experience detailing Virginia’s
incomparable place in Civil War history. It shares a unique interactive
experience, as visitors are invited to look into the lives of real
people- young and old, enslaved and free, soldiers and civilians. Read
letters and hear conversations from those looking to flee to freedom,
watch a film that examines Virginia's decision to secede, then explore
the impact of the War that ended slavery. The Civil War History Mobile
was designed through a partnership between the Virginia Sesquicentennial
of the American Civil War Commission, the Virginia Historical Society,
and the Fredericksburg/Spotsylvania National Battlefields Park. The
History Mobile is also supported by the Virginia Department of Motor
Vehicles and the Virginia Tourism Corporation.
