On July, 21, 1861, Union and Confederate armies fought what was then the largest battle in American history at Manassas, Va. Participants saved or collected souvenirs and relics of the battle and many of those items found their way into the collections of The Museum of the Confederacy. This video uses those artifacts, including one very unique map drawn on a bedsheet by a wounded soldier, to tell the story of the battle.
The Museum of the Confederacy has brought together staff and other contributors to create educational videos for visitors, students, and educators. Watch these videos for more information on the Museum's world-class collection of artifacts and special projects. New videos are added every few months, so check back often.
