Museum Mission

The mission of the 16th Regiment, South Carolina Volunteers, Museum of Confederate History, is to protect, preserve and defend the memory, history and heritage of the two hundred fifty thousand (250,000) gallant Confederate soldiers who gave their lives during the War Between the States.  In fact the Museum will honor all those who served the cause of the Confederate States of America.  Foremost is the duty to provide a true and accurate historical perspective of the War period in an educational manner and to preserve the cultural heritage and artifacts of the South.  Central to this mission of education is the development and maintenance of an extensive research library in conjunction with the Museum.  This library will be available without cost to the public for genealogical research as well as research on the War and related issues.  The Museum Board of Directors welcomes all who search for the TRUTH.

This museum is dedicated to an accurate portrayal of the history of one of the most tragic periods in America's past: 1861-1865. We show the events as they were, without embellishment or revisionism. The museum is home to numerous artifacts and displays portraying the war and home life in the South during that time.

My real name is Mark I took my family here for an educational experience. I have to say if you want to learn some real history from educated folks this is where you need to go. Friendly, welcoming people , respectful, factual information. Mike was very helpful to find my 6 great grandfather on the enlisted roster for me. I plan on returning they have a second national flag returning soon from a historic restoration facility that the smithsonian uses. Im not good at remembering dates but I am very interested in getting a look at it and a pic.

Great collection. Guide is incredibly revisionist, still believes the South should have won.

There is a lot of talk nowadays about where the Confederate flag belongs. Many people say it belongs in a museum. Well... this is that museum. Inside, there are five rooms encapsulating both the military and government history of the Confederacy. There are many many artifacts. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and welcoming. Overall, I was extremely impressed by the museum and learned a lot. I would highly recommend that people from all sides of the political spectrum visit this place to learn about an unfortunate but extremely important part of our history.

The guide lectured me on "states' rights" and never acknowledged slavery. Also, I got the impression that the derringer pistol display was in actuality a shrine to the weapon that murdered President Lincoln...
