Exhibitions

The long-term exhibitions for the Lee Chapel changed in October 2007 and include the main exhibition "Not Unmindful of the Future:" Educating to Build and Rebuild a Nation, as well as new interpretation in Lee's Office. As part of this renovation, a changing exhibition gallery was installed. The changing exhibition space currently houses Lee in the Field, a commemoration to the 150th anniversary of the Civil War.

With a firm commitment to help rebuild the nation through education, Robert E. Lee put Washington College on the path to becoming a modern university. He occupied this office during the final two years of his presidency, late spring 1868 - October 1870.
