Gift Shop

The gift shop in the Visitor's Center features many unique and hard to find "War Between the States" items including books, flags, chess sets and many other models and figurines. You will also find an exciting line of Civil War t-shirts and caps. Kentucky made items as well as food products and an impressive selection of Kentucky books make this gift shop a must see!


Our visitor's center features exhibits detailing Davis' political life before and after the Civil War and the building of the monument. Also told is the little known story of the Kentucky "Orphan Brigade."
