Since 1898, the United Daughters of the Confederacy (descendants of Confederate soldiers who commemorate the Civil War, especially the part played by Southern women), has operated this small museum on the second floor of Market Hall. The museum is a little disorganized but the simple displays of old flags, uniforms, swords, rare Confederate postage stamps, and other Confederate memorabilia are fascinating nonetheless. Try and pick out the actual white handkerchief used to surrender Fort Sumter in 1861, and a lock of General Lee’s hair.
