Confederate Memorial Chapel

This Civil War chapel was built to commemorate the Confederate dead. Located on the same grounds as the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, VA.

[Jaclyn Brown, 06/03/2015]

The white wooden gothic revival chapel with cannon was constructed in 1887. It's an ornate nexus of tension when it comes to how best to acknowledge the "Confederate dead;" battles have been waged over whether the rebel flag can be flown on the property.
