This chapel is a memento of Richmond and the space it occupies in the history of this nation, though it will probably be understood in a manner that misappropriates a direction that the Confederate states had occupied at the time of it's inception; no doubt the challenges of considering it's reputation in a different age is likely to upset many. If talking about museums it is likely an important foundation of the culture. I've noticed many of the stain glass windows have (likely been broken out) and replaced with regular glass. No matter what it represents to an individual, it is still an important representation of a time and place lost in time.
Neat place , go visit some Confederate history
