The Commonwealth of Virginia’s HistoryMobile will be in Fredericksburg as part of the city's week long 150th anniversary commemoration of the Battle of Fredericksburg.
The HistoryMobile will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday at the Fredericksburg Battlefield Visitor Center.
On Saturday and Sunday, the HistoryMobile will be at Chatham Manor, located at 120 Chatham Lane in Stafford County, directly across the Rappahannock River from downtown Fredericksburg.
Visiting the HistoryMobile is free.
The interactive “museum on wheels” is housed in a 53-foot expandable tractor-trailer. "The museum uses state-of-the-art technology and immersive exhibit spaces to present individual Civil War stories from all over Virginia, focusing on the perspectives of those who experienced it—young and old, enslaved and free, soldiers and civilians," according to the Virginia Sesquicentennial Commission.
For additional information on programs commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Fredericksburg, go to the National Park Service website.
Virginia's HistoryMobile is on a four-year tour to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War.
