That You’ll Remember Me: Jewish Voices of the Civil War
About 3,000 Jews fought for the Confederacy during the Civil War, many of whom lived in Richmond, Virginia. A permanent exhibition answers the question of why the Jewish community in Richmond was so ardently in favor of the Confederacy. The short answer? They were grateful to their new homeland, where they had found social acceptance and opportunity. At Beth Ahabah Museum and Archives in Richmond, Virginia (804-353-2668).
