What had been just a rumor has been born out by a press release announcing the closing of the Museum of the Confederacy at its old site at 1211 Clay St and the consolidation with the Richmond Museum of the Civil War. I went to the museum over the weekend and had a daunting time parking. The MOC is hemmed in on all sides by the monstrous Virginia Medical Center and looks like its slowly suffocating. I hope this works out well but there are a ton of unanswered questions. Is this the beginning of the end, or a new beginning. We will see.
