The Casemate Museum at Fort Monroe

Fort Monroe, 20 Bernard Road, Hampton, VA 23651, USA

The Casemate Museum is located within the moat area of Fort Monroe, America's largest stone fort. The fort remained a major Union stronghold throughout the war, denying the Confederacy access to Norfolk and Richmond from the ocean. It was also the regional headquarters of the Freedman's Bureau and is the home of the Coast Artillery Corps. Exhibits include many Civil War artifacts and the cell of Confederate president Jefferson Davis, who was imprisoned here after the Civil War (1865-1867).
