This Jefferson Street tobacco warehouse, seen in a photograph taken after electricity came to Lynchburg in 1883, was typical of the Civil War hospitals in which slaves served as nurses, cooks, and laundry workers.
Any contribution to the costs of maintaining the museum is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your generosity!
