Civil War Collection

LONG GUNS 2The Old Waynesborough Commission is proud to announce the opening of an exhibit of one of the most renown collection of authentic Civil War artifacts in the state of North Carolina.  This exhibit, made possible by the generosity of the R.L. Hamilton family, includes many rare weapons from the Civil War, including rifles, handguns, knives, ammunition, swords, and more.  The collection also includes items such as Confederate and Union belt buckles, buttons, and other personal items from the period.  Many of the artifacts in the exhibit came from the battlefields of the Civil War Battle of Averasborough, which was fought on March 16, 1865 in Harnett and Cumberland Counties.  The exhibit is free and open to the public.
