Civil War Mural at Hupp's Hill

Strasburg, Virginia

mural in room

Inside the museum at Hupp's Hill Civil War Park there's a long mural that tells the story of the American Civil War. The mural was originally commissioned by banker and preservationist Leo Bernstein when the museum was called the Stonewall Jackson Museum. It was completed in a short period of time by artists Chris Wilson and France Coates in 1991.

Several years after Mr. Bernstein's death in 2008, this property become a combination tourist information center and a museum run by the Cedar Creek Battlefield Foundation.

  10. Historical murals are always so interesting. The style seems more delicate than the typical street art I'm used to. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
