Lee-Jackson & Black Confederate Tours

The Stonewall Brigade Camp would like to invite visitors to our events to explore the lasting impact that Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson had on the local African-American community.  To fill out your weekend between events, we are providing visitors the opportunity to walk the streets of Lexington and see historic sites connected with our Black Confederate citizens.

A guided walking tour may be available again this year if sufficient interest exists.  Please let us know if you would like one.

Help us to explore the diversity and divisiveness that plagues modern thought about the Confederacy.
