Every second Wednesday of the month, the Museum of the Confederacy and the Appomattox Court House National Historical Park are partnering to bring the Civil War Sesquicentennial to Appomattox. Each month, a knowledgable speaker will lead a discussion on a topic or event's 150th anniversary. The talks take place at the Museum of the Confederacy-Appomattox

Approximately 20,000 Native Americans served as soldiers in the American Civil War in both Union and Confederate armies. Like other Americans fighting brother against brother, many tribes were deeply divided. Linda Lipscomb explores the reasons behind their decisions to fight for either side, their contributions and the legacy they left.

Admission is free, but does not include entrance to the Museum's exhibits.
