This is the American Civil War Museum in Richmond, Virginia which I visited very briefly when I went to the Smile Conference a couple of weeks ago to receive my 'Top Cop' social media award. I was really pleased to find this for 2 reasons. My dad is 80 and has an obsession with the American Civil War. He also spent most of his life working in the iron and steel industry. This museum is built on what used to be the iron works that provided the iron for the munitions for the Confederate army. I was able to buy a really good book in the gift shop all about the role the iron works played in the war and I was so thrilled as it covers the 2 things my dad is most passionate about. I cant wait to give him the book!
