Jeff Branscome writes about Spotsylvania County.
Museum of the Confederacy coming here next?
It is hard to believe that it has been two years since we last wrote about the Museum of the Confederacy and its interest in this area for a museum.
Rawls had envisioned a museum near–even at–the Chancellorsville Battlefield site in Spotsylvania County, one of the most historically rich battlefields in the country.
There were some hiccups. Rawls showed some interest in downtown Fredericksburg instead of in Spotsylvania County.
But he last told us that he needed to focus on opening a museum in Appomattox, where the processed seemed to flow a little easier for the goal of opening this museum before the 150th anniversary.
Well, they are opening the Appomattox museum in Spring 2012, according to the Washington Post.
Which stop is next?
