Retreating Confederate soldiers, freed slaves, and an invading Union army threw Raleigh into chaos and left it balancing between total destruction and salvation. The City of Raleigh Museum invites you to explore this rapidly changing world of 1865 through a special walking tour of Downtown Raleigh. Join COR Museum Director, Ernest Dollar, as he uses letters, diaries, and photographs to reveal life in Raleigh during the end of the Civil War. The tour will be April 12 at 10 am. Tours begin at the COR Museum in the historic Briggs Hardware building at 220 Fayetteville Street. The tour lasts 1.5 hours and tickets are $20 each and limited to 25 people. The tour will coincide with State Capitol’s Civil War living history event.
