Civil War in Newport News

Come and experience the Civil War in Newport News. Walk in the footsteps of Union and Confederate soldiers as you tour fortifications and battle sites. Travel back in time at Endview Plantation and Lee Hall Mansion. Visit Fort Monroe, the largest moat-encircled masonry fort in the US, where escaped slaves were sheltered. Step inside a re-creation of the turret from the USS Monitor, the famous Union ironclad, at the world-renowned Mariners' Museum. See a wooden spoon carved by a prisoner of war at the Virginia War Museum. Learn how the soldiers celebrated Christmas during the 1860s. The story of the Civil War is the story of the people - from decorated generals to eighteen-year-old privates. Come and meet them in Newport News. Call for a self-guided driving tour brochure and information on hotel packages and special events.
