The mission of the African American Civil War Museum is to correct a great wrong in history that largely ignored the enormous contributions of the 209,145 members of the United States Colored Troops. It tells the stories and preserves for posterity the historic roles these brave men of African, European, and Hispanic descent played in ending slavery and keeping America united under one flag. The Museum uses a rich collection of artifacts, documents, primary sources and technology to create a meaningful learning experience for families, students, Civil War enthusiasts and historians about the period from the American Civil War to Civil Rights and beyond.
Volunteers play an important role at the African American Civil War Museum. If you have a love of history volunteering at the museum may be the right place for you. The volunteer program provides a wide range of volunteer opportunities. Volunteers assist with education, interpretation, fundraising, administrative support and special events.
