Our mission is to educate, commemorate, and encourage public interest in the American Civil War.

 

We welcome anyone with interest in American History or the Civil War period to join us in participating in our featured programs and events, including:

  • Education Programs:  Our bi-monthly regular meetings feature authors, historians, and other acknowledged experts who present on all subjects related to the Civil War.  Check out our upcoming and past programs!

  • Annual Field Trips:  We travel to destinations relevant to all periods of American History but with primary emphasis on the Civil War.  Come travel with us to explore history and share adventure!

  • Civil War Field Day:  Civil War Field Day, organized by The Friends of the Museums, introduces 8th grader elementary students from throughout Washington County, Ohio, and, Wood County, West Virginia, to living-history demonstrations related to the Civil War period.  Volunteers assist in many roles so please consider how your interests and talents can contribute to this vital education event!

  • Historic Preservation:  Contribute to historic preservation by supporting our periodic raffles of items of historic interest that support the America Battlefield Trust and The Gettysburg Foundation.  Who knows what curious items you may discover?

  • Historical Marker Projects:  Our historical marker projects honor the service and sacrifices of patriots with close ties to Southeastern Ohio and Northern West Virginia to both causes in the conflict.  Please take a look and you may be surprised at how close a Civil War hero once lived to you!
