American Civil War Center At Tredegar and its collection

American Civil War Center At Tredegar
Source

The Tredegar Iron Works in Richmond, Virginia , was the biggest ironworks in the Confederacy during the American Civil War , and a significant factor in the decision to make Richmond its capital. Tredegar supplied about half the artillery used by the Confederate States Army , as well as the iron plating for CSS Virginia , the first Confederate ironclad warship, which fought in the historic Battle of Hampton Roads in March 1862. The works avoided destruction by troops during the evacuation of the city, and continued production through the mid-20th century. Now classified as a National Historic Landmark District , the site serves as the main building of the American Civil War Museum . The name Tredegar derives from the Welsh industrial town that supplied much of the company's early workforce.
