As the nation's only memorial to African American Civil War soldiers, the African American Civil War Memorial is inscribed with the names of the more than 200,000 members of the United States Colored Troops who fought in the Union Army. “The Spirit of Freedom,” a sculpture by artist Ed Hamilton, stands in the center, and depicts uniformed black soldiers and a sailor ready to ship out. The museum is located at 1925 Vermont Ave, NW Washington DC, directly across the street from the African American Civil War Memorial, located at 10th and U Streets, NW Washington DC. The mission of the African American Civil War Museum is to preserve and tell the stories of the United States Colored Troops and African American involvement in the American Civil War. We utilize a rich collection of primary resources, educational programming and technology to create a meaningful learning experience focused on this pivotal time in American history.
