Rediscovering Brentsville's Civil War Stories: Conserving and interpreting Civil War artifacts in Brentsville, Virginia to rediscover soldiers' stories.

The Prince William Historic Preservation Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is raising funds for the Curation and Conservation of American Civil War Artifacts at the Brentsville Jail.

“Came to Brentsville, examined the place, found five houses occupied, including the jail. But two men reside in this town; the court-house has but a part of the roof remaining on; the houses are generally in ruins.” Thus began a letter of March 8, 1864, written by Captain Andrew H. McHenry of the 13th Pennsylvania Cavalry.

Brentsville, Virginia has a rich and colorful Civil War story that has largely been lost to history. The purpose of this project is to re-discover that history and tell it through the interpretation of artifacts left behind by both Union and Confederate soldiers.
