The American Civil War Museum has created a website where you can learn more about the history of Monument Avenue. 


"At the American Civil War Museum, we see the complex, messy, and multifaceted history these monuments represent. Ultimately, history is never static, but always present. Each generation asks different questions of the past, and each generation finds different answers to make sense of the world it occupies. Our generation is no different. We believe that conversation rooted in evidence-based history is the best guide to discerning our place, and our future, in an alive and evolving narrative.

To help explore the complex history of Monument Avenue, the museum offers a document reader, an online exhibit, a select reading list, and a blog series."
