Event Schedule: click here
Line the re-created route from the Richmond-Danville Railroad to the Sutherlin Mansion as we recreate the Confederate President’s carriage procession, with cavalry. Join civilian and military re-enactors as we hear President Davis read his Last Proclamation from the steps of the “Last Capitol of the Confederacy,” where it was written 150 years ago. This is part of the museum’s History on the Lawn event. Encamped re-enactors will provide demonstrations.
Museum free admission. National cemetery tours available by reservation.
