Since 1741 Virginia Citizens have become American Soldiers and made World History. Visit the Stonewall Brigade Museum to explore more than 275 years of Colonial, Virginia, United States and World History through the story of the one United States Army Infantry Regiment that participated in all of it.
The Foundation’s education and travel programs are for Students and Adults and we provide resources for Educators in our region. We host and lead history tours to Battlefields and historic sites in Normandy and Verdun, France and will add the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia in 2019.
The 116th Infantry Regiment is organized under the Unites States Army Regimental System (USARS). The goal of the U.S. Army Regimental System (USARS) is to foster unit readiness and combat effectiveness by developing in soldiers a sense of loyalty and commitment which comes from long-term identification with a unit and the opportunity to highlight the history, customs and traditions behind the regiment.
“25-75-100” is the 116th Foundation’s two year fundraising campaign to support all of our programs: The Stonewall Brigade Museum, Education and Veterans outreach.
The Foundation’s VISION is for everyone to know and understand the History, Heritage and Legacy of America’s Citizen Soldiers. Our MISSION is: To provide museums and archives for exhibits and artifacts of historic significance from the 116th Infantry Regiment and area Citizen Soldiers; Conduct education programs for Students and Adults; Support outreach for Veterans, members of The Regiment and their families.
