White Oak Museum houses an extensive collection of Civil War artifacts, representing both Union and Confederate troops. Most items were discarded or lost by troops camping or fighting in the Stafford County and Fredericksburg areas.

Displays will amaze the novice as well as the serious Civil War Buff - including replicas of soldier huts that were used as temporary housing during the winter months. Many Civil War soldiers died of wounds and disease.

To give proper remembrance to these brave soldiers, White Oak Museum exhibits both military and personal items to honor the soldiers, from private to general, who suffered both in battle and behind the front lines.

Visit White Oak Primitive Baptist Church across the street. White Oak Primitive Baptist Church was used as a military hospital, United States Christian Commission station, and as a photographic studio. Fifty-two soldiers who died during the encampment were buried on the church grounds. Their bodies were later moved to Fredericksburg National Cemetery. The African-American parishioners separated from the church and created Bethlehem Primitive Baptist Church located near the original White Oak Primitive Baptist Church.
