The experience of the Virginia battlefront is emphasized in An American Turning Point: The Civil War in Virginia - Waging War.

Traveling to eight Virginia museums between 2011 and 2015, this 1,500 square foot gallery exhibition features more than 100 objects and nine state-of-the-art audiovisual programs.

The exhibit encourages visitors to consider how a single event, separated by 150 years can influence and address the questions of today: what was gained, what was lost, what was undecided, and what was left for us to resolve?
