The Southern Museum will host Virginia’s Civil War 150 HistoryMobile for a one-day visit on Thursday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The exhibit, an initiative of the Virginia Sesquicentennial of the American Civil War Commission, will be located at Depot Park across the street from the museum and admission is free.

The HistoryMobile exhibit will be followed at 7 p.m. by a lecture given by Michael Shaffer from The Civil War Center of Kennesaw State University.

The Southern Museum will offer free admission during special late hours, from 5 to 8 p.m. The public is invited to enjoy Shaffer’s lecture discussing the ‘Atlanta Campaign and the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain’ and then view the museum’s new temporary exhibit ‘1864,’ which commemorates the 150th anniversary.
