Since 1741 Virginia Citizens have become American Soldiers and made World History. The Stonewall Brigade Museum houses a rare collection of artifacts and archival materials related to the 116th Infantry Regiment, the 29th Infantry Division and the U. S. Army.
The Foundation’s education and travel programs are for Students and Adults and we provide in museum and in classroom resources for Educators in our region.

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.
