Historical Reflections - Civil War Driving Tour

The Civil War in Newport News saw the world's first battle between ironclad ships, the awarding of two Medals of Honor, a growing role for African Americans in the United Sates military and one woman who, disguised as a male soldier, fought for her country. Today, Newport News pays tribute to this heroism of the past with historic homes, battle sites, fortifications, monuments and extraordinary collections of personal artifacts. The story of the Civil War is the story of the people - men and women, black and white, slave and free, rich and poor, decorated generals and 18-year old privates. Come and meet them in Newport News.
