Museum of Weaponry and Photographs from the War Between the States in Decatur AL

The Montgomery Advertiser on Monday October 15th ran a story regarding a museum in Decatur AL which has an extensive collection of weapons and photographs and artifacts from the War Between the States valued at $3MM.  Original photos include some of General Robert E. Lee, Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest and Union Generals Grant and Sherman.  Weapons in the collection include examples representing supposedly 90% of those types used in the WBTS.  The Blue and Gray Musuem is a private collection of Robert Sackheim, a former NASA engineer originally hailing from NY state.
