City Point Early History Museum at St. Dennis Chapel

St. Dennis Chapel was built by the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps in 1887 as a Catholic Church. The exhibit "Seeking Freedom Where The Rivers Meet: Contrabands, Colored Troops and City Point" fills the chapel. The exhibition reflects the African American experience of moving from slavery to freedom during the Civil War. Stories of individuals who became contrabands, and then supporters of the Union cause come to life.
