RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — The Museum of the Confederacy plans to break ground on its new main exhibit site in Appomattox, where the South’s surrender to the Union ended the Civil War.

Officials at the Richmond-based museum said in a release Wednesday that the groundbreaking for the new museum will take place Sept. 23. The 5,000-square-foot space is expected to open in the spring of 2012.

The main exhibit at the Museum of the Confederacy-Appomattox intends to focus on the events that led to the war, and the reunification of the United States.
