In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson’s death, and the time when he laid in state in Richmond, the Museum will be exhibiting the flag that draped his casket. This rarely displayed artifact, which was the first recorded use of the Confederacy’s 2nd National Flag design, is one of the most important single flags of the entire Civil War. Come see it for yourself during this limited, two-day exhibition.

A banjo concert in the style of Joel Walker Sweeney will be presented to museum guests by banjoists from throughout the South. Come hear songs from the antebellum South played as they were originally intended to be performed. For more information on the concert, contact Josie Butler at jbutler@moc.org or (855) 649-1861 x203.
